Gradients for Your Table

November 8, 2021

We had so much fun with the Discover Gradients Weave Along, that we created Napkin and Placemat instructions using the gradient lessons in the class as a launching pad for our design.  The napkins are woven with 10/2 Tubular Spectrum™ mercerized cotton yarn, and the placemats are woven with 3/2 Tubular Spectrum™ mercerized cotton yarn.  Each kit contains enough yarn for warp and weft and has multiple color options.  Both the napkin and placemats have instructions for either shaft looms or rigid heddle looms.

These are the same colorways from the Discover Gradients class.  Add to your collection of colors at a great price.
