CW - Hollyhocks Crewel Wool Collection

The Hollyhocks Crewel Wool Collection includes ten beautiful shades of pink, coral, rust, burgundy, and fuchsia - perfect for stitching flowers and more.

My Crewel Wool Thread comes from the United Kingdom. It is a two-ply thread designed especially for crewel embroidery. Individual skeins have approximately 27 yards. A skein of thread will go far! I use the thread both single and double - sometimes triple in the needle, depending on the amount of coverage of fabric I am looking for and the stitch I have chosen.

The thread comes packaged with a small white wrapper with one tail end hanging out. Pull on the loose end of the thread gently and cut a piece about 25" long to stitch with. Keep the wrapper on the thread so that it will stay organized.
