Primke Hand-dyed Linens and evenweaves

Because we in Australia are having more and more problems getting coloured linens and even weave fabrics, we have come up with some of our own.  Below are the photos of just 2, but there are more on the web site and we are going to add to them as time goes on.  So if you have a colour that you would really like let us know.

For instance the Monet Blue, Monika dyed for someone who is stitching one of Monet's gardens and the cross stitch pattern had no sky in stitching, therefore he really needed a sky blue.

New Primke Design by Gunter

Gunter has worked the wisteria in Primke threads and I think they almost look real.  The Wisteria is worked in Casalguidi technique on Cashel linen.  Gunter also frames all our pieces and I think the octagonal cut mat board gives the whole design an oriental flavour.
