Well I am a true believer that for tatting there is no thread like hand dyed thread. Some would call my love of hand dyed thread an addiction but the way I like to look at it is, if I am going to spend all that time tatting something I want it to be unique, colourful and something to be cherished for years to come. I am not saying that you cannot do that with plain thread but with hand dyed thread it comes alive. As a special gift to myself I pooled my Christmas money and ordered 12 skeins of hand died thread from Marilee also known as Yarnplayer. If you have not tried her hand dyed thread yet you must treat yourself to at least 1 skein just to experience the pleasure of the way the colours blend to add extra dimension to your tatting. You will not be disappointed, but beware this thread has been known to become addictive. A link to Yarnplayer is listed under my links for handy reference.
