My journey into the world of weaving

Handspun and shuttles

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!
