This 2/26 Wool is a versatile weaving yarn at a great price. The color range is amazing--deep and rich tones with some brights and neutrals to give you plenty of choices. The suggested sett is 28-36 epi. There are approximately 7,280 yds/lb in this 2/26 Wool mill end, and the cones weigh in at approximately .50 - .75 pounds.
Sold by the cone, full cones only. Wind-offs are not available for this yarn. Cones are approximately .50 - .75 pounds each, but weights will vary.
This yarn is perfect for clothing yardage and works up into a cloth similar in weight to a Pendleton shirt. I wove it as a 2/2 twill and experienced no problems getting it on my loom or weaving it. After wet finishing and pressing I was amazed at the result. I bought almost every color or red and orange that was available and at the time there were no less than 4 different, very close in color, pinks. I could never dye yarn like this to get such subtle variations. If used end on end in the warp, your cloth will glow.
