Valdani knows that for crochetiers–who typically craft apparel, blankets and other tactile wares–the softness of their threads and final products is paramount, which is why they have created a new 100% long-staple range of crochet threads. Using premium Egyptian cotton, which is colored naturally using an innovative hand-dyeing process, Valdani believes their thread is soft, strong, durable and beautiful, and will allow crochetiers to create pieces of the highest quality.

Valdani has decided to create a new 100% long-staple range because they believe this technique creates the softest and silkiest cotton available. As a recent article on Home Grown Cotton explained, only roughly 5% of cotton is long-staple, but this premium type results in a smoother and softer surface that tends to become softer with age and use, and is far more resistant to pilling and tearing.
Valdani has also hand-dyed their new collection because this natural technique is both more people and environmentally friendly, and it produces guaranteed colorfast threads. The team at Valdani also knows that most crochetiers want to create pieces that can become family heirlooms and last for generations, and their unique hand-dyeing technique produces colors that will retain their depth and vibrancy for decades to come.
Valdani specializes in crochet threads and their team personally loves the craft. As such, to mark the release of their new long-staple thread range, they have also reached out to some of North America’s well-known crochetiers and asked them to design new color collections for their shoppers.
One new such collection is Carrie Golias’ Carried Away collection, which features a combination of twelve solid and variegated threads in a harmonious rainbow of muted and cool-toned pastel hues like light pea green and faded coral. Also popular is Cindy Blackberg’s Garden by Cindy Blackberg, which features earthy browns, greens and golds accented with floral pinks and reds and a bright sky blue.
Valdani is based in Edmonton, Canada, and they ship their specialty threads across North America.
A spokesperson for the thread makers said, “By closely working with renowned designers of textile art, we can offer you many stunning designer collections. They have been created either as pattern specific collection, or the color palette a famous designer uses in her creations. We carry collections in all cotton products that we produce, including our new long staple threads for crochet.”
