Woven Scarves & Shawls

Hand Painted Warps

Most of my shawls and scarves have hand painted warps.  This means that when I measure the yarn for a weaving, I lay it out on a table and paint it with dyes.  After setting the dyes, I rinse out any excess and dry the yarn.  It is at this point that I take it to the loom and wind it on and thread it.  I weave the fabric, hand twist the fringe and give it a final washing.


 Hand painted warps make one of a kind item.

The chenille scarves are rich and elegant with that special soft feel.

These are designed for the women with a unique sense of fashion.
