Hand-dyed thread from Australia. The colors are developed in color "families" with the intensity of color ranging from light to dark in number sequence. Poppies comes in a 25 meter skein and is 50% silk & 50% wool. It is similar in size and feel to Impressions and combines well with Impression in the same project. The color variegation within the same skein is subtle and stays in the same color family making it a beautiful shading thread.
