After we spun the alpaca fiber, we warped the loom.  The loom is a rigid heddle table loom made by Ashford.

Time to start weaving!  This is the fun part.

This scarf, now finished, measures 50 in. by 14 in.  We hand-spun all of the yarn that went into it.  The colors are natural, coming from black and white Alpacas.

2016 Wilson County Fair

 We had a great time demonstrating at the Wilson County Fair with the Friends of Fiber. We demonstrated spinning, weaving, dyeing, knitting, crocheting, and needle felting.
