VINNI’S COLOURS – SERINA 100% Bamboo, Hand-Dyed Yarn for Embroidery
A wonderful Thread for Creative and Silk Ribbon Embroidery Enthusiasts
Based in Cape Town, South Africa, and a favourite with South Africans, Vinni specialises in gorgeous hand-dyed cotton and bamboo yarns. She is well-known amongst knitters and crochet artists and so I thought I would introduce embroiderers to her wonderful product. I love her yarns for the soft, subtle sheen that they bring to creative and silk ribbon embroidery.

Today I am launching some of her lovely shades from the SERINA range. Whether you knit, crochet or embroider, you will love this yarn!
Serina is a 100% Bamboo, hand-dyed yarn. Bamboo is a luxurious yarn with a rich shiny lustre. The variations in the depths of shade make every product a unique adventure. Its natural drape makes it ideal for embroidery. The yarn divides into eight threads. Use 1 strand for finer detail and two or three for added volume like larger French knots or detached chains. You can also use it as it is (all 8 threads) to embroider larger lazy daisies on a jersey or bag or to form branches, stems and thick blades of grass, couch onto your design with a matching thread. And if you love to knit or crochet, then this yarn is for you! It’s fabulous for knitted or crochet scarves, shawls, cowls, summer tops, home decor and babywear. The possibilities are endless!
