More Yarn has Arrived

I decided to weave some babywraps for myself on my big loom. I want to try out some of my ideas for a babywrap, different weave structures, from what I have seen. I bought 3+ lbs of unmercerized cotton, two similar shades of blue, for $8.00. from a weaving guild member. These are high quality yarns better than what I have bought recently. Yep, the U.S. had quite a cotton spinning industry. All gone mostly, sad. Without being jingoistic, we knew how to do it. This was not enough to finish my warp so I ordered 15 lbs of unmercerized cotton. It was spun in Brazil.

  1. Wondering whether you may work with wool and where you might purchase your thread?
