Faye’s Spinning and Weaving

Above is a bobbin of Faye’s beautiful handspun tencel.

And here is a ball of Faye’s plied tencel and alpaca.

The scarf above was woven by Faye in mostly plain weave and a bit of pattern to accent.  The weft is Faye’s handspun.

This lovely scarf/wrap was woven by Faye using all handspun for the weft.  Those bright colours look like the harlequin mix from our fibre day.

Margaret’s Tapestry

Margaret is an amazing weaver who has been at this craft since she was a young girl.  This gorgeous tapestry depicts the legend of how St Francis of Assisi tamed a wolf that was devastating a town called Gubbio, in Italy. If you would like to read the story,  you can read it at taming the wolf.  It is a lovely story, and this is an awesome piece.

Faye’s Cape

Faye made the above scarves using some of her own handspun wool and also some that was spun by Trudie, which is the green on the left in the above photo. 

Faye then decided to make a lovely cape out of the two scarves, gathering one so as not to waste any of the handwoven fabric.
