Collection: Blackwork Threads

Blackwork is a stunning embroidery technique, said to have been brought to Britain by Catherine of Aragon.  You can see it in many Tudor portraits, including ones of Henry VIII!

Traditional blackwork involves choosing counted stitch patterns to fill in outlined areas of a design.  You can use different weights of thread to add shading to your work.  If you need any advice please email and I will help you choose the right threads.
