Purveyors of "gently" overdyed 6-strand cotton embroidery floss called Sampler Threads. The Gentle Art threads are exciting and fun to stitch with, and give your needlework a faded, antiqued look. Your needlework projects stitched with Sampler Threads will never be a carbon copy of everyone else's because each skein is unique in itself.
Sampler Threads Care Instructions
Sampler Threads are colorfast, meaning that they will not change color when washed, will not fade if kept out of direct sunlight, etc. Although great care and detail is taken during the rinsing process, there is a slight chance that some surface dye may remain on your individual threads. It may sometimes be difficult to rinse off all the dye that is on the surface of the thread when you dye in large quantities as we do. If you would like to wash your piece AFTER stitching, we recommend that you could do following only as a precaution. It is safe to rinse our Sampler Threads in hot water BEFORE stitching. Blot them on a white paper or terrycloth towel to see if there is any residual surface dye remaining. You may repeat this process several times until they rinse clean. Again, the color will not fade. Let the threads dry (it won't take long) and then stitch. Piece may be gently washed after stitching.
