A long sleeveless vest woven in twill using a fine silk warp with silk/alpaca weft. A beautifully draping garment.



Forest Stream cocoon

A close up view of the completed cocoon using hand spun Forest Stream merino colourway by Fibre2Go. I wove a band using the fine alpaca/silk thread I had used in the warp to complete the piece.


Primaries weaving completed

Weaving is complete for an exhibition next year – 18 months in the planning with construction of the 3 pieces yet to happen. 3 different liftings to get 3 different looks on the face of the fabric – 1/3 twill for a dot of colour, 2/2 twill for a bit more and 3/1 twill for the full on handspun┬ámerino.
