Gentle Art we maintain a serious commitment to the quality
of our thread.
We use the utmost care and forethought in
selecting the methods and components used to produce our
thread. We hand overdye each batch of thread to ensure that
it is treated with care. We choose dyes and catalyst agents
for the thread which are highly efficient and extremely
gentle to maintain its durability.
In fact, they are as
gentle as the laundry detergent used in your home.
Our craftsmen work
diligently to produce a product which is consistent,
lightfast, colorfast, and has heirloom quality and
longevity. As with any hand done process, there are slight
variations within each dyelot, and there is a margin for
error. However, we are proud to say that ours is small and
we strive to minimize it.
Our vision is embodied in
each of our colors. They are subtly shaded, each skein
containing many colors blended with care to provide
incredible visual richness. Ours is a hand made craft which
looks to the heritage of the past and beautifully passes
that along to the future through an aged palette inspired by
our natural world. This vision is the hallmark of our
company and our reputation.
