NATURAL DYED SILK SKEINS
The beautiful 2 ply, low luster spun silks have been lovingly hand dyed by Master Dyer Cheryl Kolander. The dyes are the natural plant and insect materials that have been used for hundreds of years. Our silks are very easy to work with and are wonderful for all kinds of embroidery.
We offer 2 Ply FINE silks in 20 yard skeins which are wonderful for cross stitch and other fine embroidery.
We also off 2 Ply HEAVY WEIGHT silks in 10 yard skeins, good for Needlepoint and other canvas work.
Most colors can be carefully hand washed.
|"All dyes in the 18th C. were natural because no alkaline or chemically synthesized colors existed.
Therefore, considerable variations in colors were normal in the colonial period"
