I am now offering the set for sale. (Jacket and bag only)
I decided to take all the bits and bobs of wonderful fiber that I have received over the last few years, hand spin it into yarn, weave it and see what I could create from it. This is how the jacket was created. It is woven from 6 panels on a rigid heddle loom and is either crocheted together or fringe tied depending on which seams. The matching bag is woven and has been felted.
The antique pins in the photo are not included as they broke when on display at the Art show. I have since handmade a stick shawl pin that WILL be included. The woven skirt is no longer available.
Hand wash cold with like colors. Lay flat to dry. Resist wringing, no heat.
