Silk Embroidery Thread Natural Dyes on 6 Vintage Wooden Spools Shades of Yellow Orange and Golden Dyed with Weld and Coreopsis 20 Yards Each

$19.00

This listing is for a set of 6 old, green wooden spools wound with naturally dyed silk embroidery thread.
This silk thread is non-divisible.
The amount of naturally dyed silk thread on each spool ranges from about 20 to 22 yards.
These lemon yellow, brilliant golden yellow, pale, barely-yellow, light muted orange, and soft yellow-gold threads were dyed with combinations of coreopsis flowers, gardenia fruit pods and weld leaves.

This silk was 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, they have nicks, dents, and missing or damaged labels.

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 lovely addition to a vintage spool collection.
