Frangipani colour card.

Frangipani colour card. NB lemon has been discontinued but Helford Blue is a very fetching addition to the range.                                                                                These are ready for dyeing, unless you plan to leave them natural, in which case a light wash is all that’s needed. They’re also great for weaving & knitting machines.
