Hand woven natural dyed cushions

This week I've had some time at home spinning and weaving up some of my natural dyed wool. I have a new country spinner spinning wheel with a massive 2lb bobbin, which is very impressive indeed, and has made me a very, very happy lady! Ha ha

My cushions are handspun, using natural plant dyed wool and hand woven on a small loom.

 Here are some picture of some cushions I've made which I sell from my Etsy Shop


  1. I think your woven work is wonderful! One day I hope to buy a loom and weave something. I don't think I'll be hand spinning anything however. My mother had a large loom in my grandmother's barn and made rag rugs. Not my thing, but I guess the process seeded an interest in me.

    I work with clay and glass. Adding another medium may be too much!

  2. Yes, too many mediums and too many ideas - I know what you mean. Thanks so much for your comment, I will be making some more this week!
