ABOUT THIS LISTING

Blue Boy and Pinkie -- remember those? Copies of these two famous paintings hung in my bedroom during my childhood. I also had the privilege of seeing the originals on display once, at the Huntington Museum.

'Pinkie', like 'Blue Boy', is a very nappy, high-loft wool, although it is still lightweight. It has kind of a mohair look. I understand that this overdyes well, and to interesting effect, although I have no experience with this myself. Tight weave that will not ravel readily. Strips will be about 20" X 3".

ABOUT TEXTURES

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.

HAVE A QUESTION?

If you are here for the first time, I would encourage you to check out the FAQ section at the top of your screen and the 'About' section at the bottom. All common questions about how the "strips" work, ordering larger pieces, color organization, shipping, payment methods, exchanges, accuracy of the graphics, and others, are answered in these areas.

Please see the home page for announcements, updates on the development of new wool colors and products, and information about vacations.

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.
