Purple Fleece
Everything for the weaver, spinner, knitter, felter, and dyer
October newsletter...

What's new?

We'll be having a pot luck luncheon to say goodbye to our summer
Whorls & Purls participants on Saturday, October 3rd, at 12 noon.
Please contact me if you'd like to join us.

We have hand turned Magnifiers (with a secret needle compartment!)
and Heddle Hooks now available in different woods. Nice tools are
wonderful to work with and make very special gifts.
They are $20 and $15 respectively. Please email or call for more info.

Each month Purple Fleece highlights a "Feature of the Month".

The "Feature" for the month of October is 20/2 unmercerized cotton.
There are approximately 8400 yards per pound.
These are mill end cones of varying weights and 8 different colors.
This is a wonderful thread for weaving fine runners or dish towels that are thirsty for water.
The price is normally $10 per pound but during the month of October,
it will be $5 per pound. Shipping costs are additional. Please click on the photo
to see all the colors, weights, and prices.

Click here for our Feature page and to order now.


"Whorls & Purls" is an open gathering that meets regularly on Saturday afternoons.
Everyone is welcome. Bring a project and join the fun in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.

Be sure and check out the Deals & Steals page for some spectacular bargains.

We currently have 3 used spinning wheels
on consignment plus many other items.

Happy fibering! -- Debbie
