Thread care notes for Cottage Garden Threads
- 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.
Air Dry .
Do not hard press, treat with care.
Any embroidery thread if treated this way will react badly by flattening, losing sheen and possibly bleeding colour.
It is important to treat any embroidery gently.
