Nestled in the quiet hills of Victoria, Australia, Mother-Daughter duo Pam and Katie, along with their passionate team of local women, design, create and produce Cottage Garden Threads one-by-one. Each unique, hand-dyed skein leaves having been handled with care so that you too, can love the color and feel the difference
Cottage Garden Threads (CGT) uses only the finest quality long staple mercerized base thread, which results in a high sheen thread with a low knotting rate. The unique CGT packaging allows you to keep thread color, number and weight information handy as well as eliminate tangles. By simply pulling on the left hand side of the skein, the thread will untwist and be ready to use length by length, or strand by strand.
CGT Threads are designed with the same color at either end of the pre-cut lengths, which results in continuity of the subtle color blend only achievable with hand dying. CGT threads are short-pitch variegated threads, which allow you to enjoy the subtle blending of colors even when stitching small details.PRODUCT DETAILS:
:: Available as either Size 8 Perle Cotton or 6-Strand Embroidery Floss
I have embroidered for many a year with the commonly -available-in-every-craft-store-in-the-land brand and suffered the outrageous slings and arrows of inopportune knots, twists, splits and just plain aggravation. Frankly, I didn't know it could be SO MUCH NICER to work with a different thread! I bought a bunch of these on a whim because I loved the colors and I will stick with them because of the lusciousness of the fiber, the utter lack of twisty turny knots and the way it just glides through my fabric. Highly recommend this brand. I'll be replenishing all that other stuff with it.
I had to have this, my favorite color. I have a hand quilting project in the works and this will become part of the stitching.
