WOOLSEY: 20 Inspiring Colour Palettes For Your Next Tapestry Project
THIS WOOLSEY PALETTE HAS NOW BEEN RETIRED. PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR NEW RANGE HERE.
Today’s journal is a short one, but I've packed it full of colour inspiration!
I’ve brought together some of my favourite Woolsey shades and curated a gallery of 20 colour palettes you can reference when planning future projects.
There are cool and warm gradients, calming neutrals, and a selection of soft and bright mixed palettes.
As a bonus, I’ve taken some of these mixed palettes a step further and added a pop of unexpected colour. I think these fun ‘challenge palettes’ will test the more adventurous weavers out there.
Woolsey Colour Palettes...
Woolsey is the first weaving yarn by Loom & Spindle! A weaving yarn that has a structure and composition that was carefully considered and selected specifically for tapestry weaving.
Woolsey is a single ply 100% wool yarn with moderate twist.
These elements come together to produce a smooth inelastic yarn ideal for tapestry style weaving where a dense and cohesive fabric is desired.
Where multi-ply yarns can shadow and dull the surface of the tapestry fabric, Woolsey’s defining single ply construction helps reduce these effects, encouraging a smooth bright fabric surface.
When woven at gauge, Woolsey produces a clear and well-defined weave ideal for working shapes and textural stitches.
With our recommended warp sett of 4-6 epi (16-24ends/10cm), Woolsey will always get predictable coverage taking the guesswork out of project design.
With its quick and easy coverage, Woolsey is ideal for tapestry inspired weaving projects destined for wall décor and home furnishings.
