Hand woven Blankets with Apifera's Wool
These blankets were hand woven by Mid Coast weaver Phyllis Leck of The Village Weaver in Bristol.
Using Apifera's fiber from our sheep, she created a beautiful pattern of overlapping squares of the natural fiber colors. The wool is from our CVM sheep and one Blue Leicester named Assumpta who was one of our beautiful elders; she passed last year so these blankets are a true memory for me of her to wrap around me.
I will be holding on to these for a little bit as I wanted to experiment with embellishing them first-which with my schedule might take a while. So stay tuned.
I will be processing more wool next year and will let you know what goodies i decide to make.
