This kit contains 20 cones of either 3/2 or 5/2 mercerized cotton yarn, and complete instructions to weave the gamps on a 15″ or a 20″ rigid heddle loom. The Tubular Spectrum Yarn is all mercerized cotton dyed with fiber reactive dyes to minimize fading and bleeding of the colors. You will receive 1 cone of each of the following original Tubular Spectrum™ colors:
10 Yellow, 5 Yellow, 10 Yellow Red, 5 Yellow Red, 10 Red, 5 Red, 10 Red Purple, 5 Red Purple, 10 Purple, 5 Purple, 10 Purple Blue, 5 Purple Blue, 10 Blue, 5 Blue, 10 Blue Green, 5 Blue Green, 10 Green, 5 Green, 10 Green Yellow and 5 Green Yellow.
We include instructions for 2 basic gamps (plain weave and a 3 thread huck pattern) that you can weave with half of the yarn included in the kit. Then you warp the loom again and weave the second half of the color gamp. Want to know more about Color Gamps? Click here.
