As stitchers, we all love new products that will make our stitching more enjoyable. I was checking on what was new on Ebay one day (there's always something new there, right?), and I ran across Garibaldi's Over-Dyed 6 strand cotton floss. What? Floss that I didn't know about? I placed a bid and pretty soon was the owner of a collection of lovely jewel-toned floss skeins.
The only drawback that I can see is that the floss isn't numbered or named, so it wouldn't be appropriate for a project where 2 or more skeins of the same color are needed. But for small projects or a small area on a large project, Garibaldi floss would work very well.
Garibaldi's is a small company and doesn't have a website yet, but Shawn, the owner of the business and creator of this pretty floss, says that a website is a future goal for easy choosing and ordering floss. Her floss is currently available on Ebay, where there are quite a few auctions for collections of different shades. So go and get yourself some! And while you're there check out their rayon floss too. I am so bossy.
I'll be taking along some of the Garibaldi's floss on the Sisters In Stitches upcoming retreat. And if my fellow Sisters are nice to me, they might just get some of their very own.
