Eco Stash Busters
For one entire month, I resolved to weave without acquiring any new fibre. I did the classic closet dive that I used to do for shoes and came up with pure gold.
Not only is this good for the environment, it's good for the clutter. Not to mention the bank account.
I love one-of-a-kind weaving - the wonderful people who buy my products deserve to feel special and what's more special than having the one and only of anything?
I discovered these scarves, lurking in my stash cabinet, from top to bottom in the picture:
Cashmere and merino twill in pink and cream - just deliciously soft.
Plaited twill in teal and green alpaca. Wow!
Black with silver and grey stripes in linen and merino undulating twill.
Teal alpaca and whitish sock wool (of all things) in broken point twill.
Merino and BFL wools combined, then felted. This is for a VERY cold winter day.
Again with the cashmere and merino this time in browns, teals and pinks. Yummy.
Plain old sock yarn does itself proud in a (mostly) green and teal scarf.
These are currently for sale at Soulwork Studio in Salem, Ontario. If you're in the area, do drop by and have a look at the work of some of our very talented local artisans. If you can't make it to Salem, and you simply must have one of these scarves, drop me an email and I'll make it happen.
Stay well, stay warm.
