Each skein of Weeks Dye Works embroidery floss is a divisible 6 strand thread. The colors are over-dyed by hand and are beautifully variegated. Each skein is approximately 5 yards.
This hand over-dyed, 6-stranded Egyptian cotton fiber was Weeks Dye Works' initial product line. It was introduced into the cross-stitch and embroidery market in 1994, and remains our largest line with the most colors available. The colors are variegated enough to be noticeable, yet subtle enough to blend naturally.
Weeks Dye Works recently changed our dyeing process so that most of our currently available fibers are colorfast. We did this in an environmentally responsible process. We are currently color fasting all of our floss colors, but haven't quite finished. If you need clarification on whether your floss skein is colorfast, please reach out to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
