Weaving the magic

My mom was a weaver, and watching her set up the warp and get everything ready to actually weave was enough to make me decide I didn’t want to follow that path. As a result, I have great admiration for the talented weavers who can take fibre and turn it into lovely fabric and garments.

This Rainforest Wrap was made by a Deanna Pilling, a most talented weaver and, incidentally, the driving force behind the Sunshine Coast Fibreshed. Deanna used mushroom-dyed yarns against a black background and created this gorgeous wrap, inspired by the rain and the lush forest growth that results.

Truly inspired, wouldn’t you agree?
