Homestead Cotton Gamp Detail

Temporarily Sold Out! (Wow, that was fast!)

We’re so glad you like the project and apologize that we ran out of these kits faster than expected. If you would like to place a back order for this item we are glad to put you on the list and ship or contact you as soon as they are back in stock. We do not yet have an ETA, but we’re working on restocking as quickly as possible and will keep you updated! Please call or email with any questions or to place a back order.

NEW! Homestead Cotton Gamp Kits – special introductory price for a limited time!

Color Gamps give weavers a wonderful opportunity to better understand the interactions that happen when you blend colors. They’re both playful (yay rainbows!) and practical, plus you’ll create a set of functional items to provide both a color study reference and a pop of fresh hues in your home or studio.

Our newest color gamp project uses a simple 8/2 unmercerized cotton and the colors are more muted than many traditional primary color gamps. We love the softer palette and we’re eager to wind up our bobbins and roll out a picnic with these cheerful and instructive pieces.
