Thread FAQ

Have a question not addressed below?  Please email support@colourandcotton.com and we'll be happy to help!

Q: Are your hand dyed threads colorfast?

Yes! Threads are dyed using professional textile industry dyes which adhere to the fibers by chemical reaction. Hand dyed fibers are triple rinsed after dyeing to remove any loose dye which may not have adhered to the fabric during the dyeing process, preventing color from bleeding.

Q: Is there much variation between dye lots?

I do my best to maintain color consistency, but dyeing is an art form affected by many factors, some of which cannot be control, such as humidity, small variations in dye powder from manufacturers, etc.  Small differences between dye batches can occur and we suggest purchasing all threads needed for a project at one time if possible.  When ordering multiple quantities of a colorway in a single order, you will always receive skeins from the same dye lot.

Q: Can I request a custom thread color?

At this time I am unable to fulfill custom thread requests from individual customers.  

Q: If I am a designer, can I use your threads in my chart?

Yes!  I welcome collaborations with designers - please email me at support@colourandcotton.com for more details.
