Valley Yarns #136 Southwest Sunrise PDF
Who says Rigid Heddle weavers can't play with coned yarns? Nonsense, we say, and here’s Valley Yarns Southwest Sunrise to prove it. Tencel has a great sheen and drape, and you can use two heddles to weave with it on your RH loom. This design is a modern take on a tartan plaid using desert colors for blocks of warm oranges and reds.
