SHEEP'S SILK from the THREAD GATHERER is a beautiful hand dyed thread that works for punchneedle embroidery. I just received a shipment of yummy colors. The skeins are 25 yards, so I'm doing a little experimenting to see how many it will take for a background. I'm working small until I can figure it out. Expecting more Valdani this week too, so I may combine it with the sheep's silk and see what I get. So much fun to try new things! Keep on punchin.
