Green suddenly stood out to me, teamed with golden browns and oranges. I gathered up all the yarns I liked into a bowl and added some recycled sari silk, hand dyed Wensleydale wool locks and some embroidery threads.
I warped up my Ashford Rigid Heddle loom with handspun green alpaca and an art yarn. I was intending to use the embroidery threads woven in amongst the wool yarns and art yarn but as I started to weave I thought it would be nice to include some hand embroidered leaves as I wove. I am hoping to add more leaves here and there as I weave. It will be interesting to see how it works out!
