Hand-dyed in 1,600 yard SKEINS. Dyed by Kathrin Weber of Blazing Shuttles.
This is a fine (7,560 yards per pound) Filppucci Italian cotton skein. It is in skein form. It is strong enough to use for either weft or warp when used by an experience weaver with a gentle hand. If winding it into warp threads, standard recommended sett is about 26-30 for plain weave. 34-38 for twills. Note: I tend to sett my warps more densely than standard recommendations to showcase the dye work.
A few words from Filppucci Yarns: “Filpucci combines its research expertise with a passion for studying innovative, ethical systems. The spinning mill has long worked on rethinking processes and products, on reducing consumption and environmental-impact factors. Its sustainability vision focuses on continuously updating operations and technology, on virtuous innovation and on embracing positive codes of behavior. Pivotal factors include applying recycling principles to defend raw materials and the environment and preserving natural resources such as water and power.”
This yarn is colorfast in normal use. Do not bleach or use in prolonged sunlight. I boil it and rinse a minimum of 4 or 5 times, but there might still be a little color in your water the first time you wash them. When combining warps that include dark colors and whites, wash in color water with color catcher the first time. Please look over them carefully when you get them. If they will not work for you, please return them in their original condition for a refund or exchange.
Shipping will be added at check out. An additional 5% of product price will be added to orders sent to countries other than the USA. (Minimum of $5) This can be avoided if you have an address in the US to which your warps can be shipped.
