Discontinued Designer Yarns

Sugar Creek, Missouri


© 2017 by Discontinued Designer Yarns. All rights reserved.

Vintage yarn from Unger. "Woolray", or wool and rayon blends were considered very high end yarns back in the day (1960's apx.) and many knitters made a cottage industry of using these blends for very expensive hand and machine knit suits for New York designers. Woolray is a bouncy, tightly spun yarn that springs back into shape. This was a desired property for women's skirt suits. This type of yarn is difficult to find these days.


Slightly textured with a matte finish, in a warm beige shade. This would work nicely to add subtle texture to a weaving project, or as a knitted accent. Made in the US.

Color 941; lot 30861.01
