There's been a lot discussion lately in the COTW group about making bath mats or rugs from the double worsted cotton or using several strands of worsted cotton held together. The only store here that even sells the Elmore Pisgah Peaches & Cream is Walmart and they don't carry the double worsted...not to mention what they do carry is a very limited selection colorwise. I finally made the decision to place an order with Elmore Pisgah and get myself a couple of cones of the double worsted so I could make some bath mats. I placed my order yesterday (key word here being YESTERDAY). Today the UPS man pulls into my driveway and hands me a package containing this....(see photo). I was floored that it got here so fast! Okay, so North Carolina is just a hop, skip and a jump from me (SC) but still.....one day! I had heard that their customer service was excellent and nothing but praise for their product which I have used and do love but I still can't get over how fast they shipped. Awesome!
The cones I ordered were...on the left, #213 Sour Green Apple Cone and on the right, #182 Raspberry Swirl. I had never actually seen or held any double worsted and didn't really know what to expect...the thickness is wonderful. These are going to be some awesome bath mats.
