materials, colour, process

Every weave starts with a collection of feelings and thoughts, a natural pull towards one material or another. Generally I aim to have a selection of either English or ethical, organic and recycled fibres around. Natural colour is naturally drawn towards real fibres such as wool and cotton so choosing these makes sense.

Deciding on a warp is usually a less organic process, but can be made of as many different yarns as can be fitted onto the warping board. Once the warp is painstakingly tied up, the flow can begin. Wide, slow, tight, grouped, reserved, outbreaks of colour, floating yarns and wondering ones, so much in a plain weave.

If you are interested in any project, custom colours or pieces, I am very happy to be contacted with any visions at femke@windeweaves.com.
