We are delighted to have 6/1 Singles wool back in stock. This fine single ply wool is beautiful for yardage, upholstery, pattern weft for coverlets and other decorative weaves, even lightweight blankets. It is probably more often used for weft, but it can certainly be used to make high-quality warp as well. We offer this large array of 100 colors by combining compatible 6/1 wool from two different Swedish companies, Klippans and Garnhuset. Try it for one of our Warps to Go coverlets, or choose an inspiring project from the Heirlooms of Skåne book.

Väv Immersion has begun
We have had a grand start to our 6th Väv Immersion program through our partnership with Fabric of Life. Our fabulous group of three students here for eight weeks hail from the east coast, west coast, and midwest. They are already immersed in their beautiful yardage, following their first towel warps, as you can see here.
