House of Embroidery No 12 Perle Thread – Green Tones



These stunning twisted cotton perle threads are created by House of Embroidery in South Africa. They have a wonderful lustre and are hand-dyed in a sumptuous range of colours. The dye colours change fairly rapidly but not overly dramatically along the length of the thread, thereby producing wonderfully soft, natural shading as you stitch. I love this weight of thread for surface embroidery (all stitches) and it is wonderful for needlelace. For example, it is  used to produce the needlelace across the back of the Wren Étui.

The thread is sold in 20m twists.

Please note that the True Colour of the thread may differ slightly from displayed images due to differences in calibration and computer models.

Colours on offer are:

1. Blue Gum P5A 7. Moss P32A 13. Xmas Green P58C
2. Blue Gum P5B 8. The Sea P36A 14. Apple P67A
3. Blue Gum P5C 9. Mexico P53A 15. Apple P67B

5. Periwinkle P7B 11. Xmas Green P58A 17. Honeysuckle P97A
6. Periwinkle P7C 12. Xmas Green P58B

As a fair-trade company, House of Embroidery prides itself on the sustained empowerment of previously unskilled South Africans. Most of the team are women, many of whom had no prior employment. The majority are currently the main breadwinners in their respective families.

Cared for correctly, these products are colour-fast & light-fast.

Whilst every care is taken to remove any excess dye from our fibres, red or dark colours should always be tested before stitching.

Pull a sheet of white paper towel or cloth along a moistened length of thread. Alternatively, press the thread between the folds of a cloth with a steam iron. If any colour shows on the cloth, rinse the thread several times in cool water until all excess colour is removed. Air dry thread out of direct sunlight before using.

Cleaning your finished product:

We recommend the use of a 100% pure soap and hand washing your finished  products with cold or lukewarm water.

Wet your product, rub soap on to your embroidered work, leave for a few minutes. Rinse with plenty of  cold or lukewarm water. Place on a towel face down and press gently. Air dry out of direct sunlight.
