Anchor Embroidery Range

An alternative range of embroidery products

100% Cotton ~ Twice mercerised for that soft, lusterous sheen finish.

The threads are hand washable and the colours resists fading or running.
There is a full range is available in stock of some 440 solid colours.
The 8 metre skein is made up of six individual strands.

For fine detailed work use one or two strands and for quickly filling backgrounds use all six strands.
The split strands also allows the stitcher to twist the threads of two (or more) colours together thereby creating new variations of colour blend.
This can result in some spectacular additional results to the finished project.


100% Pure Wool – The natural elements of the pure wool result in a soft finish to the work.

The wool is spun as a twisted 4 ply yarn which gives good and consistent coverage to the canvas or fabric.
The 4 ply yarn can be split, if required, for finer work and therefore is an excellent material for darning or the repair of wool carpets.
The wool is also colourfast and mothproof and there are 10 metres per skein.
