Fern, greenstone & kea

Lush colour inspired by my local walks, kea feathers, punamu and a million evergreen leaves shinning in the winter sun. 

3 herringbone twill scarves; each one with its own particular touch of green goodness. 

That Sunday feeling

Last week I finished this simple blue and white scarf. Soft, understated and perfect for a relaxed weekend.

denim blue white scarf

Hand woven using a blend of merino, silk, cotton and viscose. Approx 180cm long by 20cm wide NZ$105 free postage anywhere in the world.

This week on the loom…

It has taken me four days to get a design idea to this stage of weaving. 

Still not totally sorted, but am loving the problem solving process and giving my brain a workout. The colours and natural yarns are also quite yummy.

This piece is for an upcoming exhibition, but you can have a little peep. 

Beachcomber, dreamweaver

I’ve been wanting to make one of these wall hangings for a long time. I simply tied on some natural textured yarns onto a piece of driftwood (using larkspur knots); attached some delicate beach finds; did a bit of hand weaving over and under groups of threads here and there; and finally, added a touch of silvery sparkle.

Think I’ll call it a ‘dreamweaver’ – maybe it looks a bit 1970’s, but spending an hour quietly making something with natural elements has made me really happy 🙂
