Oriental Linen is 52% Silk and 48% linen, the nubby part being the silk. It is a 2 ply thread, each ply made up of one thread of linen and one thread of silk. Each fiber takes the dye differently, resulting in color variation that runs the length of the thread as well as color variation in sections if a multi-colored skein. Suggested uses include: wool applique and wool embellishment, needlepoint and cross stitch. Always purchase enough of one dye lot to complete your project.

 

Flax 'n Colors is a 100% linen thread. The subtle sheen of linen is a lovely contrast to either silk or wool threads. Suggested usage is just as it comes off the skein (do not ply down) and use it for embroidery, wool applique, cross stitch on 18 count linen, or basketweaver on 18 count canvas. It lays nicely for specialty stitches on 18 ct. canvas. Purchase enough of one dye lot to complete your project.
