Last year, Saco River Dyehouse, who had bought the rights to produce Paternayan in 2013, went out of business. This leaves Colonial Needle and their Colonial Persian as the only company left making Paternayan’s wool. In 2013 went JCA sold off Paternayan Colonial bought the rights to make the base yarn. They are also committed to making the original colors. It’s an excellent thread and wonderful for lovers of Persian Wool.
Florilegium has a wonderful history of this storied thread that makes sense out of the twisty path it has taken.
