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.
Cottage Garden variegated threads are beautiful, vibrant, and a joy to stitch with. Embroidery thread can be used for slow stitching, surface embroidery, counted embroidery and needlepoint techniques.
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.
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 machine dying process resulting in abrupt colour changes as opposed to the subtle blends of hand dyed threads.
Stranded – 6 stranded thread is divisible into 6 strands and can be used as a single strand or multiple strands together. CGT stranded threads are 10m cut into 50cm lengths.
