'Barnboard' is a fine check, with shades of amber peaking out behind bars of charcoal grey, giving it a wonderful primitive look. Great for applique, or wood applications in hooking, perhaps. Weight is medium, and it has no decorative threads in it that would make it hard to tear. Strips will run about 19" long X 3". Zoom view shows actual size of pattern.
Textures behave in a variety of ways, depending upon the weave, and of course there is much more variety in style and weave, compared to the hand dyed wool, which is all dyed over a 2/1 twill, a pretty consistent weave from bolt to bolt. Textures also shrink at dramatically different rates, which are hard to predict, so while I will always strive for a 3" X 18" strip, sometimes it will vary a bit in length -- may be 16 1/2" to 19", although 3" X !8" is the nominal size I am selling. All textures have been pre-fulled and are ready for use.
THE CHALLENGE OF CHOOSING COLORS ONLINE
In general, use the INDIVIDUAL color image as your guide. I have devoted many hours to adjusting the images to match the actual wool color, but this is no guarantee of accuracy on your monitor, especially laptop monitors. These will not display the colors of the wool properly -- a desktop monitor is a better choice for shopping.
