Hand-Dyed Six-Strand Cotton Embroidery Floss: Collection 1
I had the urge to dye some embroidery floss this winter and thought I would make a little Valentine's collection for you! I truly love using hand-dyed floss because it gives your finished embroidery, whether you're doing cross-stitch or just embroidering on the surface of your fabric, a richness and depth that is unmatched. I like to dye colors that have very subtle variations so that the floss just develops a gorgeous and sophisticated depth of color. The shades in this collection include, from left to right:
All floss is DMC brand. Each one of five colors comes in a hank of 10 1-yard lengths, threaded through a card. Colors are dyed with Rit dye and finished with ColorStay Dye Fixative. They are washed and rinsed multiple times to be as colorfast as possible, though I would store away from sunlight and I would only use these on items that you will not be washing, to prevent the possibility of the reds bleeding slightly.
I plan to dye these small batches of floss frequently, so please consider collecting them all! More to come soon!
