Silk Thread Title Fibers to Die For

Silk Threads Image

The ‘Fibers to Dye For’ line of silk threads are carefully hand dyed to create an antique patina for your reproduction samplers. The natural dyed silks of yesteryear, although considered bright in their day, did not have the vibrant, clear color of today's chemical dyed silks. The mordants used in the traditional dying process (such as iron, copper, or tin) tended to tone down or mute the colors of the silks. The process of hand dyeing the ‘Fibers to Dye For’ silk threads adds further charm, giving a slightly uneven shading as opposed to the strong color differentiation of variegated threads. The combination of the slight shading and subtle color ways work harmoniously to create the very essence of an antique needlework piece.
