Keeping it Clean

Inspired by practical beauty, I've been weaving towels. For the kitchen, or the bathroom, your pick!  They have been traveling to the summer markets and have been quite a hit!  This color story is limited to what's in the shop now.    

Absorbent 100% Cotton, handwoven in a classic twill fabric.  Hand stitched hem and hanging loop. Ready to clean spills, dry your veggies and add some handmade fancy to your kitchen

Stay tuned for the next color story, I'll be warping them up soon! 

Cotton in Blue

This scarf is 100% cotton, and was a 100% dye challenge I set myself. 

 

My comfort zone is my beloved wool & silk blend, and wool in general. I've been dyeing these fibers for years, I know what my dyes will do, and can dance with "mistakes" and make them sing.

Cotton is not something I know about. It takes extra chemicals and doesn't respond as vibrantly as wool tends to.  I wanted to experiment with cotton as a potential for making bags, and wearables, of course. I ordered yarn, dye and soda ash. 

Challenge accepted. 

 

  I had no true expectation, so I was pleasantly surprised by the pale mint and blues that I pulled from the dye pot, I think it went quite well. 

This scarf is in the shop right now. 

It is narrow and long enough to wrap a bit, a perfect scarf for the Southern 'winter'. 

Weaving away!
