The Painter's Thread ranges from Tentakulum consist of hand dyed threads, dyed using a specialised procedure, to create captivating changes of colour which are not repeated. All Painter's Thread ranges are not guaranteed to be colourfast but if you do decide to wash them, use warm water at 40°.In this range, Tendakulum have taken original Flower Thread from Dansk Blomstergarn as their base and overdyed it to produce their unique range of Painter's Flower Thread. Flower Thread is 1 ply matte cotton strand. It is slightly twisted and is a perfect contrasting thread to shiny Soie d'Alger. Although mainly used for cross stitch, Painter's Flower Thread is perfect for many other embroidery techniques.
