Wondering what a mellor is for? You’re not the only one!
A mellor is a sadly overlooked embroidery tool which is used for laying and guiding threads into place.
In goldwork it plays a special role in helping to prevent cracks forming while you stitch cutwork or chipping.
It can also be used for cross stitch and tapestry/needlepoint to help guide the threads so that they lie flat together for better coverage.
These gorgeous tools are offered in a choice of woods:
Sycamore (pale blonde wood with a subtle grain)
English Cherry (light, warm toned wood)
Purple Heart (naturally damson purple colour)
Walnut (mid-tone brown wood with a lovely grain)
Rosewood (dark wood with a clearly defined grain)
I don't carry a large stock of these tools because of the lovely variety of woods, so if you have trouble choosing please pick 'random' and I will select one from my current stock. Of course if you have a particular colour in mind, choose that one and I will make sure you get it. Thank you.
