Due to my attention being focussed elsewhere, my shop has languished somewhat with very little for sale in it. Well no more!
These are some of the smaller items on offer there at the moment. I am also hoping to offer some textile artworks as soon as I can get round to it.
I have also taken advantage of the very unseasonable weather to dye some threads. It is such a long time since i have experimented with variegated and I have forgotten how pleasing it is to watch how the colours mix and intermingle to create new ones. They are of course natural dyes and the fibre is silk.
Some of these will be available in the shop to buy in due course.

I have finally got round to stocking up my shop. All the items listed have been coloured using natural dyes. I have sat on them for a long time (at least a year) because I wanted to see what would happen with the passing of time and I am happy to report that they have remained the same as the day they were dyed. I obviously cannot vouch for long term light/wash fastness but this is probably true for all types of dye whatever the source. Here is a sample of some of my stock;

Today it is Brazilwood. Am hoping for the lovely claret colour I usually get. Looking promising
It comes in off the line in a glorious tangle
And has to be tamed and ordered ready to sell
I guess I am getting closer to being open for business again!
