Random

To mimic the random growth of grape vines, the random texture of the organic yarn, I decided to spot dye the yarn to give the future weaving the same feeling.

Now the curing phase begins for about two weeks

2.5 Kilos of Organic Cotton Yarn from India. The Black was made by the Charring of Grape Vine Shoots from Germany.

On the Loom, Alladorf 60


New Draft for the Children’s Security Blankets

This draft is from the fragment of cloth belonging to the eighth-century Alamannic warrior, Alladorf Grave from Bavaria.
It is only one of the few weavings from the eight to tenth century that have been identify.

Handcrafted Lap Blankets for Wheelchair Users. For Yourself or a Love One.

I have added a new size of woven blanket. They will be the same as my other blankets in texture, color and fibers. the only differences is that they are woven narrower to fit within the width of the wheelchair wheels. I will be offering two sizes, lap and full length. These blankets will be one of the few weaving that I will be offering online for purchase.

Natural Cotton from Georgia, Dyed with Natural Cutch from Turkey and Hand Finished with Kantha Stitching.

Ready for Fall Markets.

Organic Textured Cotton Blankets
Only three Natural and Organic items were used. Cotton from India, Soil from Italy, France and the USA. Home-Crafted Soy Milk.
The next group of blankets will be using natural dyes from plants.

Earthy · Organic · Natural · Sustainable

Organic cotton, grown and spun in India. Mud dyed (stained) with organic soil. The mud dyeing gives the cloth a soft earthly color.

Rabbit Holes and Full Moon in Aquarius.

Over the last couple of years going down rabbit holes about clothing, I needed something new for spring markets. I have done scarfs and tea towels, but it just did not fit Llano Fiber.
So, with the full moon in Aquarius and a bolt of loom woven cotton it is time to test the waters for handcrafted clothing.

Cotton yarn from Georgia = ladies handcrafted overall.

WIP

Off the Loom and ready to start Kantha Hand Quilting.

Loom woven boucle yarn and basting pins.

Texture

I wanted to add more texture to the next blanket on the loom. I am using two thickness of yarn, 3/2 and 5/2 cotton yarns switching between every third row.
