We are thrilled to be collaborating with Liz Gipson of Yarnworker on a Weaver's PlayBox that is filled with yarn, project inspiration, and helpful tips created especially for rigid heddle weavers.

Our first box is all about sharing our passion for wool yarn in its many forms.

Weaver's PlayBox includes: 

  • 5 skeins of yarn from 3 of our favorite American wool mills: Cestari Sheep & Wool Company, Mountain Meadow Wool, and Brown Sheep Company.
  • Liz Gipson's beautifully designed 10-page PDF guide packed with project information and techniques that teach you how to make 12 different scarves (see a few of these example scarves in the photos). Your box includes enough yarn to choose and make 3-4 of these scarves. We'll offer refill kits in the future if you'd like more of this yarn.

The Lilac bundle includes 5 skeins of yarn from 3 of our favorite American wool mills: Cestari Sheep & Wool Company, Mountain Meadow Wool, and Brown Sheep Company. To increase the number of color combinations we can offer, the alternate colorways include Brown Sheep Lanaloft in variegated and Prairie Spun in a coordinating solid. See page 7 for a link to tips for using singles in the warp. 

All of these colorways are pre-sale. That means the small mills we work with are going to spin and dye the yarn just for you, in the exact quantity you order. Based on the time it will take to spin and dye the yarn, we expect to deliver these new colorways to you in late September. It will be worth the wait, we promise!

Want to experiment with color combinations before committing to a larger piece? Try the Swatch Maker Loom, and learn more about swatching from Liz Gipson's book The Weaver's Guide to Swatching

Great Idea!

I am a fairly new weaver and love the yarn and the very thorough patterns and much that I’ve ordered another colorway 😁. I’m an experienced knitter and former yarn shop employee. I’ve always liked Brown Sheep’s yarn, but the other mills are new to me. I really am impressed by Mountain Meadows yarns. So glad you are supporting US mills!
Thanks Sarah and and Liz

A personal weaving class in a box

The wool is the highest quality. The Weaver’s Play Box is so much more than just phenomenal wool. The instructions provide easy to follow instructions to make your own treasures, along with teaching you about woolen vs worsted and much more. I also purchased the A Weaver’s Guide To Yarn, which was a wonderful read and helped further teach me. I can’t wait for the next play box, it’s like a personal weaving class in the comfort of your home.

Weaver’s Playbox

I was lucky enough to get my box I. The first shipment. I was so excited and when I opened the box I was so pleased. Both Sarah and Liz are so helpful and willing to answer questions and being a fairly new weaver, I have lots of questions.
