These sweet thread skeins from Japan are hand-dyed using natural elements. Each label indicated what material(s) was used to dye the thread.
The size of the thread is equivalent to the thickness of two plys in a skein of 6 ply embroidery floss - very similar to Flower Thread. This thread is twice as thick as the NONA thread bundles. Each skein contains approx. 12.5 meters / 13.7 yards
These threads are wonderful for temari ball making, mending, embroidery, quilting...whatever project would be enhanced by these wonderful threads.
A bit about NONA:
Nona means 9 in latin, and 9 is an incomplete number. Because it is unfinished, it is 'never ending' and 'continues forever.' This ties in to temari ball-making, which is what inspired NONA threads to begin. The idea behind NONA is that by connecting creativity with nature, one can be more present in their life. NONA also strives to entice makers with the process of dyeing with vegetable dyes in order to shepherd a renewed awareness of Japanese culture and multiculturalism.
