Awhile ago I purchased some purple and white 5/2 yarn from you. Thank you. Delivery was quick and I just starched and ironed my finished towels.
The colors are wonderful, the yarn washed well, and was great to work with. I am a beginning weaver and loved the feel of this yarn and the fabric. The weaving draft is by Barbara Elkins: Modified Star-work Dishtowel on 8 shafts from Valley Yarns.
One picture shows the bottom. The towels are woven with the bottom side on top, always a surprise when finished as I turned it over. Of course, I did crawl around on the floor to see the bottom as soon as I had some weaving done. Life is always an adventure.
Compared to the dulled, toned, shaded colors I had found previously, THESE HAVE LIFE, ZEST, ZIP, FUN, DELIGHT, SASSINESS! Yippee! I took them to our Woolies on Wednesday group (embroidery on wool) and the ladies got VERY excited!
Smiles, I'm sure you'll be getting some orders.
I thought you'd like to see what I'm doing with the red/purple part of the Tubular Spectrum.
I'm really having fun with it.
This is my network drafted shawl using your yarn. It is stunning!
I have just finished my place mats using the natural color cotton yarns. The finished mats are wonderfully soft. The color is great. This is a twill and I tried some Leno Lace on the edge. Thank you!
