CECILIA'S HANDSPUN EMBROIDERY THREAD.
We are delighted to present a new range of hand spun, hand dyed embroidery threads made by our friend Cecilia. Inspired by wild flowers of the countryside, they are spun in 2 ply 100% kid mohair, which gives a fluffy sheen.
These threads are almost too good to use. The spinning is out of this world. Anything made with this thread, will look beautiful.
I therefore thought it right to try and make an 'out of this world', hand spun embroidery thread display system, from model spinning wheels, stuck together and sprayed gold. The display will soon spin round, as I've just bought a Lazy Kate mechanism.
Each skein is approx 12m long and they cost £4.50, and come wrapped up in a bit of tissue paper.
