cotton on the warping board

Just measured warp for Baby Wrap with "American Maid" Yarns naturally-colored American-grown - in pale greens and pale browns in addition to the traditional white. The color is a part of the fiber and therefore does not need dye to produce the colors. The cotton is grown in the southwestern U.S., and spun here in the United States. The cotton is produced by a consortium of growers that are using sustainable farming practices such as Integrated Pest Management, sensible water usage and low chemical input. We are trying to support US grown and spun cotton as much as we can these days.

Table Runner

Table runner
This beautiful table runner is an asymmetrical design with brown, burgundy, colony green slate blue and purple. It is a visual delight and a pleasure to weave. It is my first commission, and I made 4 place mats to match. It has a "summer" side that is brighter and greener. Made of Maysville Cotton rug warp fron Webs, gray mop cotton weft from The Mannings, and 5.2 purple cotton from Lunatic Fringe. Now taking custom orders in any length.
