Rainbow Crewel Embroidery Yarn Kit 12
A pack of 10 skeins of lace weight Blue Faced Leicester wool yarn that has been hand dyed with natural plant dyes.
The yarn is a fine lace weight superwash pure wool, suitable for crewel embroidery, tapestry work, crochet or fine lace knitting.
Each skein is approx. 20 meters in length
10 skeins of naturally plant dyed rainbow colours per pack.
The natural dyes are created using plants, leaves, flowers, tree barks and minerals that have been used and tested through the ages. Naturally dyed colours fade gently yet remain beautiful.
Some of the dye plants that I use to create the many shades of the rainbow are:
Reds: Madder root, Brazilwood, Cochineal
Yellows: Weld, Fustic, Dyers Greenwood, Flame of the Forest
Blues: Indigo, Woad, Japanese Indigo
Purples and Greys: Alkanet, Logwood
Please note that hand dyed yarns take up dye at different rates, so may have some colour variation throughout the skein, creating a unique look to the yarn. Some natural dye residue such as Indigo may rub off onto your hands. This is harmless.
