Churro Coyote Warp ~ Now Available!
I now have Churro Coyote Warp listed in both my shops at Wind Rose. I have made 50, 100 and 200 yard skeins, so whether you just want to check it out or jump right into a large project, you're all set!
Churro is an ancient breed of sheep first brought to this country by the Spanish in the 16th century. It is known for its strength and durability and is widely used for rug making, tapestries and outer garments.
The rustic nature and strength of this fiber also would make it a great choice for book binding, enhancing primitives and other crafts.
Churro Coyote Warp is 1/16 inch wide and has 8 WPI. It feels coarse next to the skin, but softens and increases loft with washing. It is slightly fuzzy creating a softening visual effect to finished projects.
If you are someone who enjoys working with rare breeds and uncommon fibers, here's a wonderful one to add to your stash!
Click on the picture to be taken to the Art Yarn section of my ArtFire shop. There you will find all three listings for Churro Coyote Warp. It is also where larger quantites are located. Click on the yardages to head directly to the Etsy listings for this one of a kind fiber.
I'd like to give a special shout out to Wool and Wings Fiber Arts for the link love! Right back at ya! I'm following her blog. Are you?
I'm still looking to give away 25 yards of Churro Coyote Warp to the first person who writes a blog feature on Wind Rose Fiber Studio. Feel free to use photos from the shop and link away. It doesn't have to be a long feature, but try to squeeze in a little juice. Thanks!
