In 2016 I decided i wanted to spin cotton art yarn… then weave it into yardage for something!. and thus my journey began. I love Sally Fox organic cotton that is grown in colors, not dyed. the colors get deeper with subsequent washings in hot water bringing out the color intensity.
here is the culmination of that journey . My saori woven and my design cotton jacket . more about the spinning and weaving below
back in 2016 this was was my first cotton spinning stareted for what would be this jacket
now roughly spun into my singles into a art bulky yarn
along with the green and and white cotton i spun recycled blue jeans that were were carded with white to spin a indigo singles too .
as you can see on top of my saori loom shelf is the bobbin holder rack bobbin holder rack here
