Cotton Clouds is a mail-order source of quality yarns (primarily cotton) that has been in business for over 30 years. Owner Irene Schmoller, well known and highly regarded by weavers, spinners, and knitters, is passionate about the beautiful yarns she sells. I'm delighted that she has chosen to kit three of my designs that have been published in Handwoven magazine.
I love that the kits are available in a variety of colors, and I hope some of Irene's customers will share their finished projects... I would love to see my designs in all the possible colors! Many thanks, Irene, for your support and encouragement!
Swedish Lace Tunic
Easy to weave, easy to construct, you'll love the comfort of this Swedish Lace Tunic!
In this variation of Swedish lace, the floats add a patterned texture instead of creating lacy holes.
Our special order Ric Rac rayon yarn gives the fabric a luscious drape, and the easy-sew tunic pattern produces a flattering garment with set in sleeves.
You'll need a 4-shaft loom, 29" weaving width and a 15-dent reed along with a few sewing notions and tools.
This kit has enough yarn to weave a finished fabric 25" x 105". We've added 25% more yarn in our extra large version.
Shown in natural. However, natural not available at this time. Order our White-on-Natural for a similar color or choose from eight great colors below.
This project is featured in the Handwoven May/June 2011 magazine which you will need for all the warping, weaving and finishing instructions. Be sure to order this Handwoven magazine if you don't already have this issue.

|Aurora Earth Summer & Winter Pillows|
Weave these stunning pillows using our popular 8/2 Aurora Earth, 100% mercerized cotton yarn.
Aurora Earth is perfect for this color study because there are so many color gradations to choose from.
Designed using summer and winter block weave structure. The secret of success to weaving a harmonious color gradation is to introduce a new color as the tabby weft in one block and then using it for the pattern weft in the next block. The resulting fabric looks complicated while in truth it is not and any beginning weaver can master this technique.
Weave these pillows on any 4-shaft, 27" loom with a 12 dent reed. Choose from two or four pillows in three different colorways.
This project is featured in the Handwoven March/April 2011 magazine which you will need for all the warping, weaving and finishing instructions. Be sure to order this Handwoven magazine if you don't already have this issue.
You'll save by ordering this kit, because we've wound just the right amount (plus some) of the 8 color shades you'll need to complete this project; without having to purchase full cones of each color!
