New yarn: 33/2 Cottolin
This beautiful cottolin yarn by Garnhuset is a beautiful blend of 60% cotton, 40% linen. Its fine weight is an excellent choice for many kinds of lighter textiles including clothing, table linens, and coverlets. We offer a tempting array of 100 colors: a full range of dyed colors, plus bleached, unbleached, and antique.
Becky used a similar finer weight of cottolin at Sätergläntan in Sweden in 1981. This dress has been well used, and still is in excellent condition.
New product: Texsolv colored heddles
We now have Texsolv colored heddles up in our online store. They come in six vibrant colors to dress up any loom, and make threading a breeze. They’re available in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and black.
1.3/1 Rug wool Yarn-in-a-Jar: 94 colors
Our Yarn-in-a-Jar is an excellent solution for those of you who want to do some serious designing with a particular kind of yarn. This invaluable design tool gives you the opportunity to arrange the colors of our yarns in endless combinations without having to buy a whole skein of each one. These precious nuggets of color can be stored safely in your beautifully labeled jar and dumped into a basket or on a table to mix and match at your leisure.
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 tool shows you accurate color and texture, with enough quantity of yarn for basic designing, and it’s beautiful to see on your shelf as a constant temptation to encourage color playtime.
2024 class schedule coming in January
Coming soon: we’ll announce the release date in our January News. We’re aiming for a mid-January release of our 2024 classes. As always, sign-ups will be on a first come, first served basis. Please remember that Vävstuga Basics is a prerequisite for many of the other classes offered at Vävstuga.
As many of you are aware, Vävstuga is moving toward positioning itself for the future. We are planning to build another barn on the property that will allow us to better serve the needs of a growing and continuing Vävstuga. We are currently applying for funding via our bank; however, any contributions would move us closer to our goal. We hope to break ground to pour the foundation next week, so wish us well!
