God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Gentle Arts Wool Threads ... Or Other Wool Stitching Threads ... Anyone?

Just a quickie post tonight.  I am exhausted physically and mentally.  We spent quite a day in Lexington and I can't say I'm any more decided about what to do regarding my dental treatment now than I was before I visited the dentist I saw today for a second opinion.  The good news is that my local dentist did not cause any damage to my teeth doing those "bite adjustments." However, other things were presented to me and I am totally confused.  I feel like Pooh Bear sitting here saying to myself "think, think, think."

In addition to the dental stuff, I am wondering about Gentle Arts Simply Wool threads.  Not the Simply Shaker threads, the Simply Wool ones.  I'd like to try them on a cross stitching project or two but they are rather pricey ($3.00 per skein).  I don't know if they are variegated but I'm guessing they might be.  Has anyone stitched with these before?  If so, I would love to have your thoughts on them.  Also, are there other wool threads that I can consider trying for cross stitch?

Hiya. I just used DMC's Medici wool on Pineberry Lane's Wool design. It's single strand and shredded a little because I used too long of a piece (coarse 28 count fabric). I'm not familiar with the GA so I can't help you with that. Medici isn't variegated and lots of sites have them half price as closeouts. Around $1 - 1.25 originally.
