I was asked by a fellow tatter for a few reasons I much prefer hand dyed thread the following where some of the reasons that rolled of the top of my head and I thought I would share them.
1. The dyeing process seems to make the thread stronger yet it does not lose its softness.
2.The colours available for any tatted project are only as limited as the number of people who are hand dyeing thread.
3. The variations of the base colour bring a special and unique quality to the item you are tatting.
4. I see the world in many shades of colours as I see auras when I am getting my daily migraines so to see something made of one shade of colour just does not seem right to me.
5. I love the new dimension it adds to the older art of tatting.
6.I love the colour because when I show people my tatted items made with hand dyed threads they are always amazed and happy for at least a short period of time and we all could use a bit more of that.
There are other reasons but they do not come to mind right now but I hope this gives you some insight into my passion or what some call addiction of hand dyed threads.
