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. The manufacturer has closed. We will ship available yarn on your order.
