DMC Eco Vita Crewel Thread is a 100% organic, crewel wool embroidery thread that gets its rich colour palette entirely from natural dyes.

This 100% organic non–mulesed wool has been dyed using infusions of completely natural ingredients such as walnut, rhubarb, indigo and juniper. You can choose from over 60 luminous shades. From soft neutrals to bold vibrant hues, the natural dyes give the thread a gently mottled appearance that adds a touch of authenticity and organic beauty to your makes.

Organic wool is a responsible alternative to conventional wool. It adheres to high standards that guarantee farming conditions, respect
animals, the planet and people.

Its even thickness and gentle twist make it perfect for hand embroidery, cross stitching, punch needle, weaving and mending. DMC Eco Vita Crewel Thread is used as a single strand, and cannot be divided. It is approximately the same thickness as three strands of DMC Mouliné Spécial.

The DMC design team has worked closely with a specialist in natural dyes to create an impressive and extensive palette of 60 colours for DMC Eco Vita.

  • Dyeing the tops themselves rather than the spun thread guarantees better colour resistance.DMC Eco Vita
  • Every colour is the result of a complex process. Each colour formula is kept for future batches.
  • As with all natural dyes, there might be slight differences from one batch to another.

This thread is Woolmark certified, and has undergone rigorous testing for colourfastness including for light, washing, rubbing and sweating.

Eco Vita 360 is a very versatile thread that is suitable for a wide range of craft techniques. Its fluffy quality adds softness, texture and a three-dimensional quality to needlework.

You can explore its properties as you create stunning embroidery designs, cross-stitch and textural punch needle projects.

Projects can be hand washed at 30 degrees, so it’s ideal for your visible mending, darning, weaving or embellishing cherished textiles.
