I have used this for a few projects now, and it is really nice yarn. I am looking forward to dyeing it, but the natural is a wonderful creamy ivory, and the yarn is both strong while weaving and soft off the loom. I don't think I found ANY knots in the first cone, and am partway through the second and no knots there, either. I wove a sett gamp, from 30 epi down to 15 epi and from 30 (really 28) ppi to 10 ppi, and the cloth was lovely all the way through. There's a sweet spot at around 20 for balanced plainweave, but it's all useful cloth!
The staff is extremely helpful, friendly and well knowledge about anything and everything regarding textiles.
Lichen Dyeing Class with Cheshire
Lichen Dyeing Class
This class is a combination of hands-on-learning and a generous overview of lichen biology, identification, and technique to extract an amazing variety of colors from dried up bits. Very knowledgeable teacher, great handouts, and good classroom space. You go home with two scarves you've created yourself, color yarn samples of eight different lichen dyes, and lots of low cost ideas for dyeing at home using lichens.

I have purchased items online and also visited the store in person. They carry a great variety of equipment, tools and fibers, but what really sets them apart is fabulous customer service. The folks at Eugene Textile Center provide personalized service and are very knowledgeable. They are friendly and make shopping a pleasure. Eugene Textile Center has exceeded my expectations on several occasions and I highly recommend this company.
