Embroidery Yarns - Popular sellers
Wheely Wooly Farm embroidery yarns have been popular sellers. There are lots of colors to choose from, and each bag has a combination of dyed and natural yarns to inspire your creativity. The feedback we've gotten on these lovely yarns is that they create a special look to embroidery that is different from commercial yarns and very appealing. Hand spun yarn brings a cozier, more charming look to the work that cannot be matched. As needlework seems to be growing in popularity, Wheely Wooly Farm is pleased to be bringing you these unique embroidery yarns for your creative needs!
Colors are usually coordinated. Prices vary by weight.
Try some today!
We are hoping to be at the market tomorrow, but the forecast is not good for drivers who live on farms...freezing rain, then snow. If the temps warm up and the roads are ok at sunrise, we'll be there! If it's icy...well maybe not. :( Don't forget that whenever we are at the next market, we have one more week of Customer Appreciation Days! Twenty percent off everything (excluding sheepskins)! There are two sheepskins left, a dark one and a silver one, and they are moderately priced, ready to go.
Hope to see you tomorrow!
