Loom Woven Silk Throw / Blanket
Handspun Silk Threads by Village Spinners from Eastern part of India.

When the raw silk sarees are manufacture, there is a lot of threads that get wasted. The village spinner’s collect the threads and card them into fiber, then handspin into yarn for weaving and knitting.
Finished size approx. 40″ x 90″ · 100cm x 225cm

Ready for the Fall Markets.

Made to Order, New Delivery of Handspun Yarn from India.

25 kilo’s of made to order yarn. Shipped from Bhubaneswar City (Known as the Temple City of India), India.

5 kilo’s of khadi cotton yarn, 10 kilo’s of recycled saree silk yarn and 10 kilo’s of a 50/50 blended merino wool (18 micron) with mulberry silk.

It took the ladies three weeks to acquire the fiber and to spin the yarn. Shipping took one and half weeks, half a week was in customs.

Yarn Cake, Work in Progress

Starting to turn my random dyed organic cotton yarn into “cakes”. It is making a nice striped effect on the cake.

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.
