I've officially fallen head over heels for weaving with handspun yarn. It is beautiful both visually and energetically. Pictured here is a hood style cowl on the Surfacing warp that features handspun weft in a colorway inspired by mussels and the sea. It was pretty fun digging out mussel shells from the Maine coast out of my jar of shells and beach stones for the photo shoot.
The wool blend of the Buoy yarn and fiber from Hipstrings is ideal sweater yarn, and makes for a warm and outdoor-in-winter-worthy cowl. Different fiber blends, of course, create different effects. There are nearly unlimited options! I'm so looking forward to more handspun pieces, mostly cowls and neckwear, but I have a few hand spun wefts planned in the next year for full baby wrap pieces too! Stay tuned!
