These are some alternative fibres I have in my stash that I’m planning to try weaving one day. Recycled saris, thick cotton cord, raffia, & ribbons.
Loopy for Loops
Loopy yarns – I spotted this gorgeous novelty yarn at Woolstock East Fibre Festival 2022 in Tatamagouche Nova Scotia. It’s by Loopy Koigu Originals 96% Mohair & 4% Nylon. Finally found a warp yarn that will blend and support those loopy loops. Its Rosewood by Rhichard, 100% merino, 2 ply, picked up locally at @lavioletteyarngiftco 🤞🏻…
Woven Pattern – got to love it!
Woven Pattern – If you want to be a weaver you have to love patterns! It’s the essence of the craft. Do you agree?
What I do? – floor loom weaving
My discipline or craft — It’s 😍Weaving. I’ve done almost all 2D mediums, and after 30+ years I have started to crave holding something in my hands!
