I’ve been playing around a bit with two different colors of crochet thread from Bre-Aly Threads on Etsy. Bre-Aly Threads is my newsletter sponsor this month which means that there’s a 20% discount code for the store in my March newsletter.

The Yarn

Bre-Aly Threads 100% Mercerized Cotton Size #10 Crochet Thread. I used one color (Fern) that was dyed on Aunt Lydia’s thread as the base and another (Kyran) that was dyed on America’s Best. I couldn’t tell a difference.

The Color I Used

This shop dyes thread with bold, terrific colors. That’s what got my attention and it’s what I love about the thread. The unique color combinations are eye-catching. On the left is Fern, which is yellows and greens and blues and on the right is Kyran which is blues and purples and reds.

Used to Crochet

I made two things with my crochet thread: a necklace and a wine bag. For the necklace, I held one strand of each colorway together and worked them that way. For the wine bag, I alternated one color with the other round for round. Combining the two different colorways was so fun!
