We are delighted to offer this beautiful fine crewel wool by Renaissance Dyeing, a small artisanal family business working out of two converted barns in the foothills of the Pyrénées in France, where they hand dye and wind the yarns.
This yarn is spun especially for them in Biella, Italy using a 24/2 worsted, 100% fine grade merino lambswool, which gives a wonderful handle, subtle sheen and a resistance to thinning and ‘fluffing’.
Impressionist packs are made up of 12 x 25m skeins of beautiful Renaissance Dyeing fine crewel wool. Each pack has been inspired by the paintings of Matisse and Cezanne, the shades selected echo each work and are a great way to inspire a way of looking at colours and to show how the great Impressionist painters used colour to express what they were painting.
We are one of the few stockists in the UK, using this embroidery thread will take your embroidery to the next level.
