In my last post, I told about how I recently organized my yarn stash and had it down to two bins. That's my personal stash of yarn that I love and see possibility in. I do have some other bins of yarn and roving for my fiber business but it's all for selling, not for me...well, unless I really need it for something. ;-) My personal stash has shrunk from so many recent FO's and because I have a big pile of yarn that I no longer want and would like to find a home for...
I got a great deal on all of these cone yarns years ago and have woven so many rugs and great things with the big chenille that I can't imagine making any more. It does weave up nicely though for bath mats like the ones I posted HERE. I also wove a huge blanket with it years ago and it's my hubby's favorite, curl up on the sofa and take a nap or read blanket. Some of them just haven't inspired me. And, it turned out that a couple of the ones I liked aren't cotton like I thought.
The big bag is 10 pounds of selvedges that I bought years ago at the Pendleton Woolen Mill in Washougal, Washington. They told me that it can be woven into a nice thick shaggy rug. That sounded exciting at the time but I never got around to it and I don't think I ever will. I love that it's from Pendleton though and the colors are rich and pretty.
All of these cones and the bag of Selvedges are available for adoption, free of charge (or for the cost of shipping) to anyone who is interested. If I don't get any takers, I'll contact a weaving guild to see if they may want it. As a last resort, it'll go to charity for a thrift shop. I've decided that it just doesn't make sense to keep them around if I'm not using them. Getting rid of them leaves more space to breathe and create in my new studio and space for new materials to create with.
If anyone is interested in this stash, please email me with any questions. I can describe the yarns, weigh them, send more pictures, whatever you need.
Thanks for stopping by! :-)
