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.

The 12 color (wheel) gamp is a traditional way of providing weavers with a chance to “play with the crayons”. This project creates a color study in a combination of plain weave with a corner motif in huck lace, to hang in your weaving space for reference. For this summery and light-hearted interpretation we have provided an opportunity to weave six practical and beautiful kitchen towels (18.5” x 27”) suitable for hanging or gifting, plus a set of six beautiful fringed oversized “picnic” napkins (18.5″ x 18.5”).

Our Homestead Cotton Color Gamp project is suitable for intermediate beginners and beyond. This color study uses subdued versions of the 12 traditional colors plus black, white and grey in 8/2 Homestead unmercerized cotton. Written for a 4-shaft loom with a weaving width of at least 20.5 inches. Although 8/2 cotton threads are fairly fine and can be delicate on their own, the finished pieces are durable and very absorbent. It’s a perennial favorite for any type of kitchen towels or table linens.
Sett: EPI 18 (a 12 dent reed with mixed sleying works well too)
Beat: 18 PPI

Get ready to weave this summery set, and then to enjoy them for al fresco dinners on the porch!
