Waistcoat in recycled sari silk in honeycomb weave structure with Theo Moorman inset technique in the back. My first attempt at a piece of clothing which won the New Weavers award at our Guild Exhibition in 2008.

Spring Awakening – a jacket I wove using handspun crepe yarn in fine merino/silk in crackle weave structure. Love it and wear it heaps.

This jacket won the Possum Award at Whangarei Creative Fibre Festival in 2010. Possum in the weft and fine merino boucle warp makes for a very warm jacket.

Creative Fibre 2010.

 

This wrap was woven in silk and alpaca in collapsed weave structure. Very light with a beautiful drape. It won the alpaca award in Creative Fibre Experience Exhibition 2011.
