NEW!
"
Catch the Wave!" scarf kit
for rigid heddle/knitters, 2-shaft looms
Mountain Colors hand-painted Moguls wool yarn is wonderfully lumpy, bumpy, highly textured yarn. The challenge was to keep the texture when woven. Enter Mountain Colors wool crepe and the texture shines. The finished scarf reminds me of waves coming in to shore and the soft feel and drapes is like water. At only 8 picks per inch, it weaves up fast.
Three colorways: Cornflower, Ruby River and Mountain Twilight.

"Harmonious Huck"
This 4-shaft huck lace design features Mountain Colors merino/silk blend Winterlace yarn in their Harmony Colors. This silky soft scarf is long enough to wear multiple ways - a French knot for your favorite blouse or floating around the collar of your "go-to" jacket. Finished size: 8" wide x 72" long

Available in Harmony Plum (as shown above) plus:

     
Harmony Iris                  Harmony Soft Rock          Harmony Garnet           Harmony Mallard





"Chorus Line" scarf
This mixed warp scarf designed for rigid heddle or 2-shaft looms features a chorus line of Mountain Colors yarns in the warp: Hollyhock Wool Crepe, Thunderstorm merino Ribbon and Lodgegrass Woo/silk Twizzle. Changing the wool crepe weft colors dramatically creates new looks. A fun, easy kit to weave, the resulting scarf is soft and flowing. Having the mixed warp pre-measured and wound makes it an excellent beginners kit, but intermediate to advanced weavers will love the convenience of the ready to go warp. Finished size: 8" wide by 72" long.

Available with weft colors: Hummingbird (shown above) plus:

   
        Sierra                                 Big Sky                  Mountain Twilight


 
      "Spring" colorway - Spring bulbs in bloom                     Reverse side "Spring"

"Seasons" table Runner
Celebrate the changing seasons! Featuring three of Mountain Colors yarns: Merino wool crepe (warp), Winterlace merino/silk blend (weft) and Weavers Wool (pattern weft) this two block, 4-shaft design in Summer and Winter is fast and fun to weave. Finished size: 13" wide x 48" long.

 
"Summer" colorway - Lakes and Gardens                           Reverse side of Summer     

    
"Fall" colorway - Leaf Peeping Tour!                         Reverse side of Fall        


  
"Winter" colorway - Quiet snowfall                        Reverse side of Winter  


  


 

"Kaleidoscope"
Featuring Mountain Colors "Mountain Goat" yarns (wool blended with just a kiss of mohair for shine), this kit is designed with rigid heddle and knitting loom weavers in mind. A kaleidoscope uses light and mirrors to transform ordinary objects into extraordinary designs. In this kit, the hounds tooth plaid weave structure transforms the color repeats in the hand-painted yarns into new dimensions. 
As pictured above in "Trading Post" plus colorways below.  Finished size: 7.5" W x 60" L.

          
"Red Tail Hawk"         "Peppergrass"          "Headwaters"   



"Watercolors"
Hounds tooth plaid is a color and weave structure that looks far more complex than the plain weave that it is. Combining Mountain Colors' Raven Weavers Wool with select Harmony Series Weavers Wool colorways, the hand-painted yarns create a lovely shaded color change, like a watercolor painting in wool. Designed for rigid heddle; table loom weavers will love it as well.
As pictured above: Raven with Harmony Lake plus colorways shown below. Finished size: 7.5" W x 60" L.

   
"Harmony Moss"        "Harmony Garnet"


 
"Through the Window"
shown in Deep Blue Crazyfoot with "Gold Rush" Twizzle
Our most popular kit returns. This kit is designed for rigid heddle or two shaft looms. Alternating Mountain Colors Deep Blue Crazy Foot with the hand-painted Twizzle creates a glimpse of color "through the window" in a
 7" wide by 60" long scarf that floats in the breeze.

All kits include Deep Blue Crazy Foot yarn with choice of Twizzle yarns. Color choices shown below

        
               "Mountain Tango"                 "Portland Rose"             "Blooming Gale"                  "Gold Rush"

New! Swatch Critter Kits for Zoom Loom!
(Click below picture to run slide show)
Zoom Loom Pin Looms by Schacht weave small 4" squares. It's addicting fun to weave the squares, but what to do with them? While weaving a square from Mountain Colors Juniper, I thought "I wonder if I can make a turtle?" And yes, I could and the Swatch Critters kit line was born.
Featuring*:
Shelby the Sheep
Frazer the Frog
Laurel the Lion
Twodot the Turtle
Clancy the Chameleon
Dagmar the Dragon

These soft, huggable critter kits include:
Zoom Loom by Schacht (kits also available without Zoom Loom)
All the Mountain Colors handpainted yarn needed
Detailed Instructions
- if you can sew a button or hem, you can make a Swatch Critter!
Kits do not include stuffing so the weaver can use the stuffing of their choice: wool fleece, poly or cotton fill or old nylons all work nicely.

*No squares are cut in the making of these critters. All critters are named for towns in their home state of Montana.
