My journey into the world of weaving

Handspun and shuttles

Leave a comment

I’m not sure how else to combine these two topics!

First the handspun. Here is my first skein spun on the Ashford – mohair and BFL.


I am now spinning some alpaca and BFL!

Then the shuttles. My Auntie Grace gave these two shuttles to me just this past weekend. One of my uncle’s first jobs was in a woolen mill where they used these shuttles! They’ve kept them all these years but she gave them to me gladly.


Not that I can use them! but I add them to my collection of old weaving and spinning tools. So thank you, Auntie Grace!
