ABOUT MY PRODUCTS:
I offer hand dyed thread and yarn in colors that aren't usually found in regular "big box" craft stores. I hand dye the fibers myself as a part-time hobby using various techniques and experimenting to see what works. Sometimes the results are wonderful...sometimes not so much. I am NOT a professional dyer and there isn't an exact science to my methods, so I am never able to exactly duplicate a shade or colorway from batch to batch. I enjoy the dyeing process and try to exercise freedom in this area of my life since so many other areas are bound by rules and responsibility.

When Peaches n Crème (aka Elmore Pisgah) went out of business a few years ago, I took advantage of the great close out discounts available on their cones of America's Best size 10 thread. As a result, I am able to pass my savings along and still make a profit. Once my inventory of AB is all gone, I will find it necessary to increase my prices to compensate for the higher prices of the available base threads out on the market.

If there is a base thread/yarn you would prefer, please let me know and I am happy to look into it and give you a price on dyeing a custom colorway for you on your preferred thread/yarn.

I am also open to dyeing requests. Since I work full time, I can't always get to it right away, and if that is the case I will tell you. If time is not of concern, and you are not overly particular as to shade (matching existing colors, even my own, is difficult, at best), I am usually pretty easy to work with. It never hurts to ask!
