My Fiber Art
Handspun silk, bamboo, and wool yarns; made using a Slavic-style support spindle.
Wool shaped using notched needles; I do sometimes incorporate wet felting techniques as well when needed.
A practice born of me having no loom and a lot of handspun yarn, these hoop weavings are created by wrapping a metal hoop in yarn, stringing a warp frame across it, and then weaving through it. I sometimes include natural elements, such as sticks, bones, stones, and feathers.
While I only know a couple of stitches and patterns so far, crochet is one of my favorite ways to play with thread! I love being able to turn yarn into immediately wearable things. (Sometimes my darling familiar Crumpet helps me by modeling tiny hats I make for babies.)
