Wool Embroidery Thread

I saw this beautiful Genziana Wool (12wt) embroidery thread at the Quilt Market.

I just had to share with you all. Traditionally this was used in Crewel Embroidery, but I think you could use it just on about any type of stitching. It is so beautiful and has such a great texture. If you have never worked with it before, give it a try, I think you will like it!

And of course if you want to break into the Crewel stitchery world...there is no better place to start :)

You can purchase any one of the yummy colors on Sue Spargo's website here. They retail for $7.50 each or you can get a whole variety of them at a little discount.
Don't forget you can upload your embroidery projects on our flickr page--hope to see some Crewel work there soon!

Happy Stitching & Happy Friday!!

  1. I haven't stitched any crewel work in decades! Must give it another try soon. Stitched up many a beautiful kit back in the day.
