These five twisted silk embroidery skeins are antique and new. Royal Society and New London Fleur de Lis. We will be listing many colors of twisted and regular floss in the next few days as we were very fortunate to purchase a huge lot of this very authentic floss. These colors are in shades of pale pink and mauve with the overal hues being a bit more pale than the photos.

As you review the color shades, remember that these are the accurate colors of the Victorian and Edwardian period. Sometimes we have a tendency to brighten up our colors based on what we use today. The colors are 98% accurate!.

The following is general info on crochet and tatting:
Crochet is a process of creating fabric from yarn, thread, or other material strands using a crochet hook. The word is derived from the French word "crochet", meaning hook. Hooks can be made of materials such as metals, woods or plastic and are commercially manufactured as well as produced by artisans. Crocheting, like knitting, consists of pulling loops through other loops, but additionally incorporates wrapping the working material around the hook one or more times.

Tunisian crochet, also known as Afghan crochet, is a type of crochet that uses an elongated hook, often with a stopper on the handle end, called an Afghan hook. It is sometimes considered to be a mixture of crocheting and knitting As such, some techniques used in knitting are also applicable in Tunisian crochet. One example is the intarsia method.

Tatting is a technique for handcrafting a particularly durable lace constructed by a series of knots and loops. Tatting can be used to make lace edging as well as doilies, collars, and other decorative pieces. The lace is formed by a pattern of rings and chains formed from a series of cow hitch or half-hitch knots, called double stitches, over a core thread. Gaps can be left between the stitches to form picots, which are used for practical construction as well as decorative effect.
