August 2020 Newsletter

August is a month of harvest around here….we are so busy, picking, freezing and processing food from that big garden out there. Some of the first signs of fall are peeking out like the Virginia Creeper and the temperature is perfect 🙂 I know that a lot of weavers are also gardeners and the first signs of the fall are so welcome because we can put that garden to bed and put our feet up.

Sending tons of love,
Jane

Gange Sunrise Scarf Kit

These lovely scarves are perfect for spring and summer! Woven with silk on linen in  alternating bands of 1/3 and 3/1 twill, they have gorgeous sheen and drape with a slightly crisp texture that will only get softer and more shimmery with wear. This pattern requires only 4 harnesses, but there are 8 different tie-ups required for weaving. If you have an 8 shaft loom, you’re stylin’, but if you have a 6 treadle loom, we’ve provided a tie-up system to ensure your success!

Fulford Mist Scarf Kit

Here on Salt Spring Island, we are so lucky to live near both the ocean and the mountains. At Fulford Harbour you can admire the two at once, especially as you approach the island on the ferry. Lovely deep ocean views complemented by misty mountain tops – so West Coast, so subtle and inspiring.

These elegant scarves are made with two colours of our 30/2 silk woven on our 40/2 linen in a timeless 2/2 twill. The combination of crisp linen and shimmering silk is exquisite.

  1. Hi Jane. I’m a new weaver. I restored an old counterbalance loom last summer and ordered the little clips for warping that fasten on top of your loom. I need another package of 5 to fill mine. I had a piece made locally to hold them. I can’t find them on your site. Can you help me? I’ve forgotten what they are actually called. You might be able to look up my last order. Rhonda

    1. Hi Rhonda, we just sent you an email!
