Perle 5

One of the first yarns we introduced was perle 5. Initially it was only in small skeins, but over the years the range has grown. We only use the highest quality mercerised cotton, and this thread is no exception.
`
`
This picture shows three of the small skeins from our Serendipity range twisted together. You can see the wonderful sheen that is apparent. Imagine this incorporated into your stitching or knitting. Each of these skeins is 20 metres before dyeing
Jumbo Perle is probably one of our most popular lines. The 'Jumbo' refers to the size of the skein, not the weight of the yarn. Weighing 25g each skein has 120 metres before dyeing, and is available in a wide range of colour combinations. This picture shows the Poppy colourway
`

`
We have two colour ranges:
1 The named range which is available from our website and very popular. This often means that they are dyed to order, so a short wait is sometimes inevitable. There are currently 42 colour combinations available.
2 Our Serendipity range. Serendipity means 'the result of a happy accident' and that exactly describes this range! Although similar colours and combinations can be found this is definitely an unrepeatable collection. Grab it while it is there because it won't be repeated. You can find this range on our stand whenever we are out to sell, and also in our Etsy shop.
The other thread that falls into the category of perle 5 is a beautiful Metallic Perle. Once again it is mercerised cotton, but this time there is also a fine metallic thread twisted in with the cotton. These are included in our thread packs and once again you can view the colours in the named range on the website. Serendipity collections are also sometimes available on Etsy.
`
`
Here you can see some thread packs ready for sale. Top left is Delphinium and top right is Lemon Tart. The others are Serendipity. You can see the metallic perle nestling between the other threads.

What can you use them for ? Embroidery, knitting, tassels, crochet, mixed media work, crazy patchwork, quilting...... Lots of other uses, what can you come up with....?
