SALE! "Faith" Cormo
$22.00 On Sale
Named for noted African American artist, author, and all-around amazing person Faith Ringgold (check out her story quilts, and book "Tar Beach," among others), Faith is a 100% Cormo worsted from Elsawool. With all the characteristic spring and smoothness of Cormo, it's perfect for warm garments. Be sure to measure your own swatch (start with around a US 7), as it works well to produce good fabric at several gauges.
Colors pictured below, from left to right: Sanguine, Osage Can You See, Fiddlehead, and Bluestocking. You can see 12-Bar Blues in the main photo in the bottom left-hand corner. Wineglass (the purple) is currently unavailable.
If you're interested in natural colors or other weights of this exceptional Cormo, please contact www.wool-clothing.com for more information.
