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.
The Forage Collection was designed by Lisa Mattock to reflect her fascination with the colors and textures of nature. All of the colors in this collection are inspired by flowers and foliage that can be "foraged".
I’m stitching small images for a memory scroll and on this little bit I used two Cottage Garden threads, Ivy and Finley. I love the silky feel of these threads and their hand-dyed colors are beautiful.
