Usually for needlepoint, only the finest tapestry or Persian wools are used, and for good reason. Their long fibers and special twists give them the wearing quality for an heirloom, needle point piece. But for decorative pillow that won’t receive hard wear and tear, we are breaking an old taboo and recommending you use knitting yarns! In this leaflet, we’ve presented beautiful ombre yarns (designed for knitting and crocheting) to be used to create matching sets of needlepoint pillows and knitted or crocheted afghans! "
