Here is 'Embers' blanket. It looked like this on the loom. Blanket weaving could get quite addictive with 1 thread in each slot of the reed it seemed quite fast to warp and weave. The warp yarns are handspun from Stuart Albrey's beautiful fine wool combed top. I dyed the yarns after spinning in variegated reds and purples.
The weft is 100% alpaca which was a natural brown and I overdyed it dark purple/plum.
The pattern is an eight shaft twill which reminds me of feathers. I love the chunky twisted fringing.
I live 20 minutes from small town in the South Island of NZ.
I'm a spinner,weaver,dyer. I sell finished pieces as well as yarns which support my fibre habit.I sell my fibre,yarns and fabrics at The Oamaru Textile Emporium in the historic precinct as well as take on private commissions.
