I was born a yarn snob. It’s inevitable when your mom is a tapestry weaver. When you’re putting as much time, love and energy into something as you do when you weave, you want to use the best materials you can. But let’s face it, when you’re just beginning with tapestry, figuring out what to use for weft can be difficult and confusing.
We thought it might be helpful to put together a list of what tapestry yarns people use and what sett they warp at. We’ve started putting together a spreadsheet, which can be viewed here.
If you’d like to add to this crowdsourced list, you can fill out this form here.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far. We hope this is useful to all of you new weavers!
