All about Kreinik's Ombre Thread

Kreinik's latest blog post highlights their Ombre, which is a soft blend of colors.

There are more colors available now than there used to be and the blending is perfect if you want shading without much work.  I've always thought we don't use metallic color blending as much as we should.  Ombre is an easy way to do the color blending without work—and Easy is my middle name!

Years ago (and I do mean YEARS), I stitched a free-form evening bag where the design was 18x18 squares of all of the colors of ombre. I'll try to find a photo to show you. It is a wonderfully soft fiber that many people do not care for because they have to be careful to maintain the integrity of the fiber.

I'd love to see it, MA. I need to play with it and see how it works up.
