Cotton Perlé Embroidery Thread
This is a hi-sheen mercerized 100% cotton twisted thread, that cannot be split, in a medium (#8) thickness.
Each card comes with three complementary colour skeins of thread, each 9m in length.
Perlé is highly suitable for any number of popular embroidery techniques, including cross-stitch, needlepoint, dimensional embroidery, and other types of creative thread work such as Folk-Art styles and tapestry work. This high-quality embroidery thread is versatile enough to be used for crochet and knitting projects and is also effectively used in Crazy Quilting. Perlé embroidery thread can be used very successfully in jewellery design, decorative tassel work and in decorative appliqué patchwork.
House of Embroidery hand-dyed threads are either dyed in one colour from a dark to a light shade, or in variegated colours using 3-9 different tones over 30 – 60cm lengths. Utmost care is taken to repeat the exact dye process; however, each dye batch is never an exact replica of the previous one. Dye- lot differences should be of no great consequence when stitching with variegated threads, as the overall effect is created by the interaction of different tones in colour. In pieces where colour consistency is crucial, please be advised at the outset to purchase enough thread from a single dye batch to finish your piece.
