Good Source for Couching Yarns

Sometimes a quilter needs a couching yarn that is really dramatic–or better yet, downright gaudy and garish and flashy.  Sometimes only and international orange metallic chenille yarn will do, or a shiny yellow eyelash yarn, or a fuchsia satin.  If you limit your search to needlework and yarn stores, you are likely to be disappointed.  Novelty yarns tend to come and go, and you can’t count on being able to find what my daughter calls “dead muppet yarn” every day of the week.

When that need strikes, a quilter can go to a sporting goods store that has a good fly-tying section, and select from an amazing assortment of flashy stuff.
