Truck Report 5/20/2011

Good morning, Woolfans! It seems like spring has finally sprung around here... and there's nothing like a world in bloom under warm sunshine to make a person feel crafty! (Or maybe it's just us...)

The Pendleton truck delivered in a big way this week!

  • 200 pounds of wooly worms

  • 200 pounds of blanket header

  • 500 pounds of selvage

We've got a rug crochet class scheduled for Saturday (tomorrow) if you'd like to learn how to use those fun, fuzzy selvage strips! Call the store (503) 535-5786 to register!

Can someone explain to me what is "blanket header"? Also, do you normally have it in stock, and at what price?

Woolen Mill Store said...

Hi mikemax!

Blanket header is the strip of fabric the loom produces at the beginning and end of a roll of fabric -- it can be between 3" and 9" wide and 60" long. It comes in a variety of colors, depending on what the mills are working on at the time.

Our stock of blanket header and other scraps (selvage and wooly worms) is totally dependent on what they are making at the mill. Sometimes we have a lot, sometimes we have a little. There's no way of knowing in advance what we'll have.

The price for blanket header is $3 per pound. You can visit the store to pick out your own pieces, or we can send up to 30 pounds of scrap via UPS. (We'll pick the pieces for you.)

Hope that answers your questions!
