Weaving a linen moonbow
The shuttle, flying through threads of linen-cotton.
Whispy clouds and a tapestry woven sun; my first wall hanging. It is the first time my weaving has been used in this way, and I love it! It becomes both a visual and tactile part of everyday life as one passes through the sumptuously soft Alpaca and Merino curtains.
Oh happy day! Just received 8 pounds of 2-ply raw silk because I was running low and need to dye more colors.
Threading, threading, threading…..
Back of the cloak
Earth Walker Cloak – handwoven merino wool with tapestry woven rays and Chilkat woven Full Moon.
All the warp is nearly wound on to the beam…A full moon emerging from the misty dark of night.
oh lovely alpaca
The results of dyeing with Daffodils and a soda ash mordant.
