65 Roses® 'Rosa Calvaria' - Thread, Zen Shin (20/2 spun thread)

Price: $7.00

Zen Shin 100% spun silk thread - 10 yards

USUALLY inspired by actual roses, this 65 Roses® colorway is perpetual..we continue to dye it.

There's a mystical rose, also known as "Death Rose"...the sentiment might be spooky, but the colors are so lovely, we were inspried to interpret the greens and purples of folklore's Rosa Calvaria.  We think the results are quite stunning!  Click HERE to see this folkflore rose.

“65 Roses®” is a term often used by young children with cystic fibrosis to pronounce the name of their disease.

Treenway Silks donates a minimum 10% of sales to Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, in honor of Andrea's angels, to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis (CF). Since developing the 65 Roses® colorways in 2017, Treenway Silks has donated $11,400 through March 31, 2022—we appreciate your support as we work toward our 2022 goal!
