Heirlooms of Skåne

heirlooms of skane book We are overjoyed to offer you Heirlooms of Skåne, the most comprehensive instructional book available today about these intricate and beautiful weave structures from southern Sweden.Take a look at this brand new book through our mini-movie preview on our web store.


A beautiful new design tool is now available for our wool yarns

yarn-jar-woo-faro_300x300This invaluable new design tool gives you the opportunity to arrange the colors of our yarns in endless combinations.  These precious nuggets of color can be stored safely in your beautifully labeled jar(s), and dumped into a basket or on a table to mix and match at your leisure. Sure to help your creativity and project planning! Traditional sample cards, with miniscule samples firmly attached in place are increasingly difficult to come by and computer screens vary in how accurately yarn colors are displayed. Our Yarn-In-A-Jar is an excellent solution for your design needs. All seven of our beautiful Swedish wool yarns are now available in their own jars. Our other yarns will become available in this format as well!

Tuna Sock Kit is now online

Our weaving yarns also make great knitting yarns!

Moosey and Socks Our new Sock Kit is now available online and includes one skein each of two colors of our beautiful Tuna wool plus a sock knitting pattern customized for us by Scandinavian knitting expert Beth Brown-Reinsel. We’re offering four colorway options that we (and our model Moosey) love. You can also choose your own two colors of Tuna, if you prefer.    

 Väv Immersion 2017

Applications are now being accepted for our 2017 Väv Immersion Program

We have begun our planning for our 2nd annual Väv Immersion Program. To apply for 2017, send a detailed description of your weaving experience and interests to the office. More details will be available when we announce our 2017 class schedule. Our amazing and delightful 2016 students have been absorbing more knowledge and skills than seems possible in such a short amount of time and they have been such a pleasure to have in the program! Tammy’s blog continues to provide a detailed account of their experiences.
