It’s that time of year again: Spring! And not a moment too soon! It’s also time for the semi-annual re-location back into my studio space for the warmer months.
As you know, I’m no longer designing or stitching… so I’m working on sorting through/cleaning out many years worth of designing/stitching stuff. A rather sad task, but very necessary.
Because much of the designing material I have was generously given to me by various manufacturers over the years, I am donating those things to individuals and organizations nearby. Of course, I’m keeping the many wonderful goodies gifted to me by stitching friends over the years… Thank you all so very much: so many great memories have come to mind whilst going through what has accumulated over the last 30 or so years!!
Try as I might, I can find no justification for keeping my collection of Appleton wool tapestry (2 ply) yarn. It was quite an investment, so I will have to try to sell it.
I didn’t realize just how much I have: 5 full 40 qt. tubs of the stuff. It has been stored in plastic containers away from direct sunlight in a pest-free, smoke-free, pet-free environment: my studio. 🙂 I purchased the wool in hanks for designing and kitting purposes. A hank is 25 grams – 8-to-9/ths of an ounce of wool: @180 yards.
While I do have some uncut hanks, most of them have been opened and cut into 3rds: those lengths are 18″-20″ long. Most of what I have available is measured/weighed into full hanks. If I didn’t have enough of a color for a full hank, I labelled it “1/2” hank (at least .5 ounces) Full hanks are $3.50, “1/2” hanks are $2.00, USD plus shipping. Invoicing will be handled via PayPal.
I have 258 of the 421 shades… so there are lots of colors! I’m working on compiling a listing, so if you are interested in acquiring any Appleton crewel yarn, please contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks everyone! And Happy Spring!
