New Blanket yarn is in

We are absolutely thrilled to offer you our new line of new Blanket yarn so soon. Just take a look at all of these incredibly luscious colors and incredible heather tones. Our initial order of this yarn came in just before Thanksgiving, and we have been hustling and bustling to get 120 colors up in our web store in time for your holiday shopping pleasure.

Identical texture to Tuna

We did an experimental blanket project using Tuna wool on one side, and our new Blanket wool on the other side, and the texture is absolutely identical, proving to us that these two yarns are perfectly compatible with each other. In case you have a stash of Tuna and wonder if you can use it with our new blanket yarn, the answer is yes!

Yarn Playground demo

If you haven’t used our Yarn Playground in a while, you’ll enjoy this demo video following Becky’s thought process as she selects her first color candidates, rearranges them to show them in various orders and ratios, and puts her final selections in her shopping cart.


Special limited-edition shuttles in elm

We could not resist these beautiful special shuttles when we were in Sweden last September. They are in limited editions from AK Snickeri and make great holiday gifts. Each one is unique so they are not in our web store, but let this photo whet your appetite. Prices run from $32 to $49. Contact us to place your order.

Weighted damask shuttle back in stock

This sought-after shuttle is now again being manufactured, now by Öxabäck. It has a low profile–great for drawloom weaving–and open bottom with room for our longest quills. The eye opening for the thread is 2.75″ long, which allows the long quill to operate smoothly without catching.

Yarn-in-a-Jar: we will recall Tuna jars

Now that our new Blanket yarn is up for sale in our web store, we are preparing to make new 6/2 wool jars starting in January. This is quite a production and we will have all hands on deck to make enough jars to replace the ones that you send back to us for replacement. We will give mailing instructions in our January newsletter, so hang on to all of your jars for now and stand by for more information.

Posting will happen mid January. We have a full program planned for 2023 and are eager to share it with you, so don’t miss our January news.
