A display of what I do

This was a bit of a display of what my studio holds. I handpaint yarn and fiber for fiber artists, weave and sell cones of yarn.

New project on the Loomcraft

This is a name draft overshot pattern designed by dje handwovens. The one I wove that she put into a kit at IWC was tencel and Rayon in lovely fall colors.  This is yarn from my studio, a handpainted 20/2 silk with handspun silk weft.  It's looking rather nice! It will be a scarf when finished.
