I’ve talked about this before, but I really love to purchase hand-dyed and hand-spun yarns to use in my weaves. Just like the weaves we are creating by hand, these yarns are made with lots of love and bring a lot of creativity of their own. When I use these yarns they put a lot of additional interest and texture into my weaves.
I recently purchased a weaver’s yarn pack from Sophie of Wallflower Weavings and that yarn is really full of color and texture. It’s really lovely in a way that photos can’t even show. With yarns that have so much texture like these you could easily just weave using the plain weave technique and get a big impact, so I think these are perfect for everyone from beginners to experienced weavers.
Oh and if you didn’t already guess from her store name, Sophie is also a weaver. She makes really sweet and magical weaves, just like her personality! You can check out her whole shop at Wallflower Weavings.
I have also shared other hand-dyed and hand-spun yarns in previous wishlists, if you want to check them out:
What is your favorite type of yarn to weave with? Wool, cotton, something else? Have you added hand-dyed and/or hand-spun yarns to your weaves?
