Why are some of our collections sold in cut lengths?
The lengths are perfect for hand-stitchers. Undo the skein, pull out a thread and cut it in half. This is the advised length for stitching by hand – not so long that the length will thin during stitching, and just long enough to enable maximum flow of arm movement.
Retwist into a skein when you have finished, or plait the length to keep them tidy. You can easily pull out a single thread if you do that.
