Botanica Tinctoria also carries a lustrous 8-Strand Organic Eri Embroidery Silk (GOTS Certified, Fair Trade Certified) wrapped on sturdy thread cards. Offered in a multitude of naturally hand-dyed colors, these special threads just glow and the stranded cards show off a subtle sheen. Threads are not plied together but are stranded and can easily be separated to create different weights and for blending colors. 8 meters thread per card. These threads are featured in a number of Botanica Tinctoria patterns including the Ruched Wrap Top using Natural and Mid-tone indigo silk threads.
