Weeks Dye Works
Hand Overdyed 100% Egyptian cotton thread consisting of 6 strands and comes in 200 colours and shades
At present not colour fast and it is recommended that the thread be washed in cold water to prevent colour bleeding before using in the work where it is felt that the finished article may at some part in its life be subject to laundering.
The company have addressed this and are changing their dying process to make all future threads colour fast.
This will take time to complete but in the meantime they will indicate on the label those threads that are now colourfast when they come on to the market
