Welcome from the Village Weaver and Scottish Lion

Hello Fiber Friends ,
Here is my recently revised blog of Maine Village Weaver. Based on the Coast of Maine I hand weave fabrics , textiles for the home , blankets and rugs. You can also see on my web site shawls and scarves. I love hand dyed , natural, sustainable and hope in the future to source more local fibers to be used.
Check my web site out and follow onto my Etsy site from my web site.
I also love Early American textiles and will offer old patterns and textiles that look old but a newly created
Well anyway check back and see what is happening at the. Maine Village Weaver ,Best Regards , Phyllis Leck

Branch weaving hand dyed yarns

I asked my son who lives on Orcas Island in WASHINGTON state to bring  me a Madrone branch last Christmas . I know that may seem strange to some of you but I had this idea in my mind  to take this beautiful branch and weave a section of in for a wall hanging.

I used some of my hand dyed wool 
The hand dyed wool I used plants found in my neighborhood 
Plants that I used were mainly Japanese Knotweed and  Goldenrod 
I mix my yarns with iron to “ sadden” the color 
The blue green is a commercial yarn 
Leave a comment below I’d like to hear from you
