Worsted Shades for Embroidery -- package of assorted colors

$ 78.00

This is the wool yarn we use most for our own reproduction embroidery work. It is smooth & slightly lustrous, very dye receptive for our vegetable dyeing process and as close as we've found to the wirey texture of period crewel yarns. Over the years we have used several suppliers, and some add a small amount of mohair. We consider it a plus, both from the standpoint of texture and dye-ability. It is equally suitable for canvas work (like tent stitch or irish stitch) and surface embroidery (crewel). For canvas work it may be used either singly or doubled, depending on the count of the canvas and the effect desired.

The assortment packages come in two sizes. The 30 skein package covers our whole range of vegetable dyed colors, but fewer shades per hue. The 50 skein package represents most of our 60-70 color range.
