Farm Update! Traditional Band Weaving + Old Farm Weaving MAL

Greetings from the farm,

This past weekend, I decided to warp a short sampling to keep my muscle memory going for this, more complex, traditional band weaving technique, and last night I cut it off the loom.

I am working towards a very exciting, advanced weaving project.

Forgive that horrible yellow lighting from my studio. :/

(Intermediate/advanced weavers - this technique - if you know, you know :)

This reminded me to share a traditional band weaving and weaving update!

Advanced Weaving Wool - Intermediate/Advanced Weavers

For those of you that have purchased your advanced weaving wool, all but one colour has arrived on the farm. They are finishing up the milling of the final colour.

I do not know why they sent the other nine colours in advance?

However, I will not be shipping any of the wool, until all of the colours have arrived and all parcels are packed. I will ship them all on the same day.

In this way, everyone will have the same opportunity to have facilitation to transition properly into the warping and weaving with this advanced wool.

I am facilitating the transition freely, with a very special weaving draft.

Det er bare å glede seg!!!!

We are moving into the perfect time of year for band weaving, in my opinion - so I am looking on the bright side that all of this is coming together - right on time! :)

If you are still considering whether to move forward with your journey into the intermediate/advanced weaving, this will be your final opportunity.

I will be unable to go back to support settling anyone in, organising access to the weaving wool, once we get started.

Intermediate Weaving Wool - Beginning/Intermedate Weavers

For those of you within this stage of the weaving, we are in a holding pattern.

I know it feels like we are sitting on the runway, for hours, waiting to take off.

My hands are tied.

Some of the heritage, intermediate weaving wool is currently being milled, but not all of it.

And by all of it, I mean, some of the traditional colours that we need.

I have been told spring - but no guarantee or dates.
