More Information on the Wools in the October 2020 Mailer
When you feel the swatches in this October mailer you will again notice a tighter weave.
You can cut many of these truly 100% wool items down to a 4 and up to an 8.5 or hand torn with confidence and without fraying. If you are a fine hooker, these new items will give you a much broader selection of textures to use in your projects. If you use our wool for appliqué, trees, proddy, shirring, upholstery, etc., you will notice tighter edges on even more intricate patterns.
For more, check out our FAQ page. Please note that the swatches in this mailer were processed with a cold rinse, a little fabric softener, and a cool dryer.
