Hand-spun, color-grown cotton handwoven top. 💚 I’m so happy I got a few photos of this piece before it found a new home last weekend.
The beautiful tedium of warping the loom is well underway.
Thanks to everyone that came out for #torcartwalk last night. @desertarchaic was hoppin’, and thanks to @shoshigirl my brand new handwoven #handspun #colorgrowncotton top found a new home. Dang she rocks it!!!!

This is the last of the three new cowls that were woven on a merino warp dyed with black walnuts. This piece has a weft of #naturallydyed #merino #cashmere #silk and some amazing #cashmere & #yak 🌞
Wow these disappeared quickly, but here is another of my three new cowls that were woven on a merino warp dyed with black walnuts. This piece has a weft of #blackwalnutdye #merino and some amazing #cashmere & #yak
I just listed three cowls in my Etsy shop that were woven on a merino warp dyed with black walnuts. This piece has a weft of #blackwalnutdye #merino and yummy chunky crazy-soft superwash merino
Kintsugi Handwoven Art Yardage is the last large weaving(a custom) on the 2018-19 Fibonacci warp. It is inspired by the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise. A good metaphor for life.
It was woven on a warp of organic cotton-linen with a weft of raw silk, hand-spun color grown cotton, hand-spun carbonized bamboo as well as just a bit of metallic thread to make the gold sparkle.
An armful of texture, much of it naturally dyed cashmere and merino 🌞 Feelin’ so good with my new creations in my @byellowtail skirt and our flourishing bamboo ❤️ A few of these are custom pieces, but the rest will be posted in my Etsy shop
A sweet little stack of scarves ready for finish work chillin’ on my yoga blocks – #sewing #felting setting is next.
