Spin and Weave

I bought a beautiful grey sheeps fleece – oh how I love to sniff wool – its my kind of heaven.  I washed, carded and spun.

Then I wove.

This is a huck draft. And the red was a happy ‘fix’ for a problem …. not enough warp yarn to get the width I needed.

After I wove and washed (and fulled) this fabric, I lost most of the lovely huck texture.  But the fabric…. Oh yes, I love it!

The intended purpose?

A cushion cover.  There will be two.  Do you like the tassels?  I LOVE the tassels! Thanks to my guild buddy Jutta for the inspiration!

Ada turned 17 months old today.  She gave the cushion a rigorous test drive and now I’m wondering if it will survive her special brand of loving 😀

    Maybe it would be better as a reading pillow in your bedroom =D I’d hate to see your beautiful waste ruined in that special way that only children know how.

    I absolutely love the fabric and the tassels. Most of all I love the colour of the grey wool. Well done you
