In 1965 Elsa Williams developed a special 4-ply tapestry wool yarn which provides ultra-smooth finished stitching, which is still the favorite needlepoint yarn of needleartists today. This yarn is spun of strong, durable, 100% wool fibers that are moth resistant and colorfast. The yarns are available in 234 colors. Please note: when ordering Tapestry yarn colors from the color card, please make sure it has a check mark next to it(these are the Elsa Williams tapestry yarn colors). If it does not have a check, it is available in Persian yarn only. You will find the yarn sample color card below for ordering and also the paper color card at no charge. A copy of each page of the yarn sample card is provided below. This yarn is available in limited supply. We will ship available yarn on your order.
