the Thread-- sold out!

Here's the first batch of hand dyed DMC 6 strand cotton floss. I measured these out to 13 yards because 8 is never enough.

I was hoping for multiples but there is enough variation from one to the next that it can't be counted on. The subtle difference might be enough to make you unhappy so keep that in mind. Open the image in a new tab for a closer look.

Each hank is $4.00 including postage inside the US.

Every time I have a dye day, there will be another dozen or so of these.

Let me know which one(s) you want and I'll send a PP invoice.

4,5...3,8,10,,,SOLD out

fat baggies

These are the Quarter Pounders, ready to ship (I left this picture huge, so you can click on it and examine the contents).

FYI - I use Procion MX dyes on all natural fibers, mostly vintage damask and linen.

 What you see here is the same pile of hand dyed vintage damasks, linens and other natural fibers churned three times to give you an idea of the mix I'll be working from to make up the next round of Fat Baggies. There are solid colors, textures and mysteries galore in between those extremes.

These are all vintage which means "tender" and not suitable for use in wash and wear things unless you are into shabby chic, in which case, you'll be thrilled at how these fabrics wear over time.

I've acquired a postal scale and did a little experimenting. A full pound of scraps from this lot fills a gallon ziplock bag to bursting.

1 full pound $100.00  free shipping inside the US

One pound

1/2 pound     $50.00  +  4.00 postage inside the US

Half pound

1/4 pound      $25.00 +  2.00 postage inside the US

 Quarter pound (no cheese)
