About our crewel kits
Our credo has never changed – use only quality materials. Scottish linen twill, Graziano and Ulster linen form the backgrounds for our designs. Our “thread of choice” is Heathway Crewel, the happy result of finding a dyemaster who understands that only perfectly spun wool and exacting color standards will produce consistently good yarn.
To that we have added Pearsall’s Silks, the finest stranded filament silk manufactured today, and Gumnut Poppies, an intriguing variegated silk/wool thread from Australia. My inner embroiderer tells me those stitchers back in the 17th -18th century are really peeved they didn’t have these fantastic choices!
All kits come with fabulously clear four-color instructions and an expertly written Stitch Guide that features stitch explanations larger than the thumbnail “how-to” seen in so many offerings.
Best of all, if you need more stitching advice or run short of a color, help is just an email away! We are always glad to help you.
