Tudor Red – Hand-Dyed Embroidery Wool


In stock



Tudor Red is a deep, rich red – perfect for folklore inspired embroidery!

All wool is hand-dyed using only natural dyes in my Yorkshire studio. The wool used here is a 2/30 nm Italian Merino of the highest quality. Each skein measures 25 metres.

Due to the nature of natural dyes, each dyebatch is truly unique – resulting in slight colour differences per batch. Care instructions: Although I take care in rinsing out the excess dye, Tudor Red can bleed when used straight from the skein. If you intend to use it on a garment or upholstery that requires washing, it might give off colour. Please make sure to gently and carefully was your threads before use. Soda based detergents can change the colour of this particular red (shifting it to a deeper, slightly purple shade). I would recommend washing a small piece to see the effect.

Customer notice: I’m very happy to announce that since the 18th of September I have used a new, 100% plant based recipe for this colour. The shade is nearly exactly the same, but over many years, might age slightly differently from the older batches of Tudor Red. All old stock is sold out, and from this date only batches dyed in the new recipe will be sold.
