When cold weather hits, you'll be happy to bundle up in a big, cozy wool wrap. And this one is special--it uses our exclusive 50th Anniversary yarn, Tall Grass. Tall Grass is a 100% wool yarn spun in Nebraska from wool raised in the US. It is hand-dyed in Kansas City by Th'Red Head in colorways that reflect the Kansas landscape. We've paired it with Brown Sheep's Nature Spun Worsted, another wool raised and spun in the US. The warp is sett at a mix of 8 and 12 epi and woven in easy twill at 8 ppi, so this is a relatively quick project despite its size. The finished wrap measures approximately 31" x 61". It can be hand washed and dried flat, with a short tumble in the dryer to fluff.
You will need:
- 36" weaving width
- 4 harnesses
- 8 dent reed
- 340 heddles
- large boat shuttle and bobbin
