Textiles for the Market Place

So, textiles for the marketplace teaches you how to make textiles and money at the same time.

our first semester project was to make products for a Gaelic historic village in Cape Breton for them to hypothetically sell at their gift shop.

I decided to naturally dye and spin yarn for sale, and here it is.

50g skeins, all hand spun and dyed with plant dyes. The furthest right was dyed with blueberries, furthest right with onion skins, and the center is them both plied together.

i am a spinning wheel addict so i am spinning MORE wool for my next project!

they are in my Etsy store! along with the shirts and capes from the fashion show (if anyone is interested… nudge nudge…. email me!)
