    Yarn sample books

    We have Yarn Sample books! Our January trip to Sweden rewarded us with real sample cards for many of the Bockens yarns. Our binders includes real samples for Line linens, 8 tow linen, cottolin, 8/2 cotton and 16/2 cotton. Our other yarns are represented by one natural sample of each accompanied by a printed color chart.

    Vavstuga yarn sample book: $32.00
