Nature Colors #2


This Nature Color Series has been specially designed by Hollis Chatelain for Superior Threads. Once the Living Colors were finished, students asked for a set of Nature Colors created in the same way as the Living Colors because it was so helpful in designing with threads.

The threads are wonderful for enhancing any realistic work including nature, architecture, and animals. They are also wonderful for adding highlights or texture to either traditional or contemporary quilts. But what is even more exciting is that the lights don't fade into looking like white on dark fabrics and the darks don't muddy out on light fabrics. It is difficult to find many of these colors on the market and they have been created in a unique and logical fashion that will give definition and/or softness to your work.

The 25 colors are broken into five sets:

  • Highlights: #'s 541-545, these are the lightest colors in the set, used for where the sun or light hits
  • Soft Foundations: #'s 546, 728, 547, 548, 549, these are the light medium tones
  • Enhancers: #'s 721, 550, 551, 552, 529, these are the brightest colors in the pack
  • Medium Foundations: #'s 553-557, these are the dark medium tones
  • Shaders: #'s 558, 559, 560, 727, 561, these are the darkest colors in the set and would be used for shading areas

They are:

  • Ideal for threadpainting, quilting, embroidery, decorative, stitching
