Cottage Garden Threads are here.
We are so excited to let you all know that we are now a stockist for these wonderful Australian threads. We use in our projects and they stitch up beautifully. We know they are wonderful but we wanted to share a bit more info about the threads and the company that makes them.
From the Cottage Garden Threads website;
“Nestled in the quiet hills of country Victoria, Australia, Mother-Daughter duo Pam and Katie along with their passionate team of local women, design, create and produce these unique, hand dyed products one-by-one.
Each piece leaves having been handled with care so that you too, can love the colour and feel the difference.”
“Using the finest quality long staple mercerized base thread, CGT provides a high sheen thread with a low knotting rate in addition to being Australian Textile Industry certified light and colour fast; making CGT the ultimate choice for you and your customers.
The packaging system unique to CGT is designed to retain the information of the thread colour, number and weight as well as eliminating tangles. By just pulling on the left hand side of the skein, the thread will untwist and be ready to use length by length, or strand by strand.
CGT Threads are designed with the same colour at either end of the pre-cut lengths for continuity of the subtle colour blend only achievable with hand dying. The short colour lengths within each skein of thread ensure a lovely effect when stitching even small details which is lost when stitching with machine produced variegated thread due to the limitation of colour length changes and the absence of hand manipulation of dyes during the hand dying process resulting in abrupt colour changes as opposed to the subtle blends of hand dyed threads.”
You can watch a short video about how to use your CGT here.
When we’ve used the CGT in a project we always tell you which one.
