The Heathered Twill Throw Kit from Valley Yarns includes the PDF draft download and nine hanks of Jaggerspun Heather.
For many years in our Beginning Weaving courses at WEBS, the first project was a scarf in plain weave with four colors forming stripes in the warp and a fifth color for weft. Made with an array of Jaggerspun Heather’s natural shades, the Heathered Twill Throw from Valley Yarns adapts perfectly to most decors. Although the size of the stripes has been expanded, the arrangement reflects the same stripe plan as that first project. This cozy throw is woven in two pieces and seamed to allow it to be woven on smaller looms.
