A beautiful mix of mahogany coloured glass beads. £7.50 including UK postage (please enquire for overseas)
I have found a few packs of undyed silk fibres. They are currently available in limited quantities. More details here.
If you are returned to the main page sadly all items are sold. More items will appear over the next few days – so please keep watching!
The summer sun brings the ideal weather for dyeing outside… Dyes always work better in heat.
So that’s what I’ve been doing this morning – standing with my back to the sun mixing colours for some Vegetarian Silk. However, the breeze was also rather strong – so I’ve been chasing dye containers too – as can be seen in the picture at the top. Yes, I did wear gloves – but the red one blew into the rose bush and I didn’t want to puncture them…..
Now it’s just a question of waiting for a few more hours and then the rinsing will begin. Vegetarian silk is very delicate in its wet state. It is easy to destroy it completely. However, slowly and gently is the key, and the results are always worth waiting for.
If you need some for your workshops with Isobel Hall I suggest you get in touch as soon as possible. There may not be much choice of colour – this will be my last dyeing session until late September at least. If you are going to the Festival of Quilts you won’t find it there as we are the only people to dye it and we aren’t visiting this year.
They should be ready for despatch at the beginning of next week – possibly sooner if the good weather continues. The contact form below will make it easier for you to contact us.
Introducing new collections! Mixed threads – all hand dyed by me for Sassa Lynne.

More collections, both large and small will be added from time to time over the weekend and details will be posted on Facebook in the new I LOVE SASSA LYNNE THREADS group. Pop over now to join so that you are among the first to see the new arrivals. Don’t forget to pass the word too!
All prices include UK postage – I will gladly send abroad, but please remember that you will receive a further invoice for postage if you are buying from outside the UK. If not sold by the end of the month the will be added to Etsy where, of course, the price will be higher to cover Etsy fees etc.
Just added more – see below
By popular request here are the first of some new collections of our cut lengths. These larger collections will give a good range of colours within a colour scheme – no duplications within different collections either – if you buy two different ones none of the colours will be the same. Please be aware that monitors vary.
The first ones are listed, there are 3 of each, click the picture to find them. More will come later.
