Cottage Garden Threads

$6.60

Cottage Garden Threads are proud to produce 97 – 100% colour fastness due to the time and effort put into the preparation and process of dying. From batch to batch there may be slight variations as with all hand dyed fibers.

Cottage Garden Threads are designed with a short colour length of 2 to 3 inches especially for embroidery to enable a good variation of colour in smaller lengths of stitching. The variegated colour sequences are inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds us every day in rural Australia.

Thread Care

Cottage Garden Threads are carefully hand over-dyed in small lots to ensure a quality product, therefore the dyeing processes and techniques are more labour intensive to ensure a beautiful quality stitchery thread. The small batch process also means that the thread is treated gently, has a sheen finish, a low knotting rate and excellent strength handling properties at the end of the process. Like any hand dyed thread, Cottage Garden Threads can not be guaranteed 100% colour fast… however these threads are processed very carefully to avoid colour loss and if cared for correctly, will have a 97 – 100% dye fastness. Washing stitchery: If you need to wash the stitcheries do so in lukewarm water with a little soft soap or neutral laundry detergent. Rinse very well . Roll the piece quickly in a very dry towel, just like a Swiss roll .Press firmly to remove water. If it is a quilt top, spin gently in a machine to remove the bulk of the water. Air Dry . Some Don'ts: Do not leave it wet Do not press whilst wet or damp. Do not hard press, treat with care. It is not a good idea to spray an embroidery with water or fabric spray and then stamp a hot iron onto it whilst the embroidery is at all damp. Any embroidery thread if treated this way will react badly by flattening, losing sheen and possibly bleeding colour. Some Do’s: It is important to treat any embroidery gently. Press each stitchery from the back onto a soft cloth, trying not to flatten the design. If you have flattened the stitchery by hard pressing :holding the embroidery over a steam source for just a few seconds will usually revitalise the threads
