Over the years, I've collected several lengths of Pendleton wool; as far as I can remember without getting them out of their bags, most are 56" - 60" wide plaids in 2.5 - 3 yard lengths. There are also a couple of lengths of Viyella (cotton/wool blend; these particular pieces are from Scotland).

It's very unlikely that I will ever get to making these up, so I'm asking for your suggestions on the best ways to sell the yardages to someone who will appreciate the quality and use them!

All ideas are welcome; thanks very much!

How about just hemming them for blankets or throws. I made a beautiful big lined wool shawl as a present for my daughter and every winter out it comes

I am very interested in your Vyella's from Scotland. I love the hand of Vyella. What colors do you have and what would you like for them?

I saw some Viyella fabric on Ebay selling for about $50.00 a yard.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10, and I've been sewing ever since.
