A good yarn!

Hand-dyed cotton yarn

Hand-dyed cotton yarn

A few bundles of white cotton yarn were hand-dyed using Procion MX dyes.

Starting with using straight colours was followed by mixing different colour combinations to create earthy tones.  Using a size 13 Chenille needle, these thick yarns will be easily stitched into projects.

Perhaps these yarns will be incorporated into the Secret Santa gift that I will make for a group I belong to, the “Daughters on Dowling”.  A very creative group who share a love of embroidery, traditional and contemporary.
