Silk Embroidery Thread Natural Dyes on 20 Small Vintage Wooden Spools Dyed with Madder Indigo Garden Flowers 10 Yards on Each Spool A20

$28.00

This listing is for a set of 20 small vintage wooden spools wound with naturally dyed silk embroidery thread.
The amount of naturally dyed silk thread on each spool measures approximately 10 yards.
The assorted colors of silk thread in this collection include shades of;
Green dyed with indigo, weld and coreopsis,
Blue dyed with indigo,
Pink dyed with lac and madder,
Purple dyed with madder, cochineal and indigo,
Yellow and orange dyed with coreopsis flowers, weld and madder
Tan and light golden brown dyed with walnut hulls

The threads were hand dyed and wound by me onto each vintage wooden spool.
The winding is not "machine-uniform".
Since these wooden spools have been previously used, most of them have nicks, dents, and missing labels.

I've done my best to show the true naturally dyed shades of these silk threads.
Please remember that each computer monitor displays color in its' own way.
These naturally dyed silk threads are perfect any textile art project that could use a touch of lovely, natural color.
I recommend hand washing in cool water with mild soap and line drying in the shade to preserve the delicate luster and color of the silk.
These wooden spools wrapped with naturally dyed silk thread would be a nice addition to a vintage spool collection.
