The Gentle Art threads are colourfast, hand-dyed 6 ply cotton fibre.
Sampler Threads are hand overdyed to give your embroidery a faded, antique look. These threads are typically more variegated than the Shakers threads, with a broader range of colour (more highs and lows).
Your needlepoint projects stitched with Sampler Threads will never be a carbon copy of anyone else’s because each skein is unique in itself.
