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.

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.

Next weaving’s for the Austin Flea Event. July 16th Austin Flea at Still Austin Whiskey in Austin, Texas.
Wraps and throws using organic linen yarns from Belgium and Hungry and hand spun wild Himalayan nettle fiber from Nepal.

All are handwoven on a 50+ year old wooden loom, in the Texas Hill Country.

Follow Llano Fiber to see more weaving’s that will be at the coming up Thanksgiving’s venue.

Color

It has been a while since I have dyed with some color. The earthy feel from this textured organic cotton yarn from India, I decided to use some organic earth pigments for my color. I am mud dyeing (staining) with mineral oxides, the green is from Italy and the red is from France. Now the curing phase begins for about two weeks outdoors.
