The Weaver's PlayBox is a collaboration with Liz Gipson of Yarnworker: a box filled with yarn, project inspiration, and helpful tips created especially for beginner and intermediate rigid heddle weavers.
Our first box is all about sharing our passion for wool yarn in its many forms.
Weaver's PlayBox includes:
Beautiful colored wool. Softer than what I expected. Haven’t used it yet but can’t wait to start. Delivery was quick and can’t wait to buy more ‘yarn’ from Gist!
Prompt shipping, love the colors and feel of the yarn. Can't wait to use them.
I'm a relatively new weaver - just over a year. And Gist Yarn was definitely one of my best discoveries. I love, love, LOVE all of the yarns I've bought and this playbox is no exception. The colors and textures are gorgeous and I can hardly wait to finish my current projects so I can start working with these yarns.
This was a great box of yarn! I wove several scarves with Liz’s patterns and had a wonderful time. Gist is a perfect merchant to work with. They ship when they say they are going to and customer service is fantastic. I have had questions about the two boxes and always get a quick and helpful response. Thanks, Gist crew!
I ordered Weaver's Playbox #1, and the wool yarns that Sarah Resnick and Liz Gibson chose were simply amazing: soft and luxurious, and so beautiful to weave with. I was so sorry when I finished weaving with them. I learned so much from about using different types and weights of wool, putting colors and patterns together. The collaboration of such two generous, talented weavers and artists is an opportunity not to be missed. (I then had to have Weaver's Playbox #2, on weaving with cottons and linens. That was just as special, and I feel my understanding of different fibers is now much more solid.)
