Organic cotton thread, & peace silk for a sustainable wedding dress.
Great news -- we now have organic sewing thread in natural, white, and black in both multipurpose (great for general sewing and overlock/serger use) and heavy duty (splendid for quilting, embroidery, jeans, bags, and so much more) versions. Available in small, medium, and large cones, so you can choose the size you need for your sewing projects and frequency. If you want to try all six, we do have a six-pack -- a small cone or spool of each kind and color of the organic machine sewing threads. We've had wonderful feedback about this thread thus far, and have loved using it ourselves; it's sturdy, consistent, fun to work with, and just all-around splendid. And since it's made in the US, it has a lower carbon footprint, too. If only we could get them to use a non-plastic cone! In the meanwhile, we encourage you to purchase the largest size you think you might need, as that way you'll get the most thread for the amount of plastic used, and to come up with creative ways to reuse the cones.
We've also added an absolutely glorious fabric in our Luminous Sophisticated Peace Silk, which is making me want to get married again just to have an excuse to make myself a gorgeous wedding dress. (I suppose I could make myself a wedding dress regardless, but it'd be more fun if I had an excuse to wear it too...) The fabric is much more substantial than our other sustainable silks (which are all gorgeous in their own ways, don't get me wrong -- I'm just jonesing after this particular fabric right now!), and it has an absolutely incredible drape. It will make stunning skirts, pants, jackets, upholstery, bedding, curtains, and so much more ... but for some reason, I just keep seeing the most beautiful bridal attire. I think my husband's getting worried.
What else? Oh yes, don't miss our Deep Black French Terry, which always sells fast when we manage to get some in stock. We're changing the items in our Yard Sale every couple of weeks, so don't assume that once an item's there it'll be on sale forever, because it won't. And we're beginning to think about stocking up on sustainable yarns for fall, so if there are any particular types that you'd like to see, do let us know.
