“While I was weaving this design, there happened to be the forest fire in Llama (New Mexico) that destroyed many of my friend’s homes. I can remember stepping out of the studio while weaving the middle section and I decided right then that I would call it Habitat.” -Rachel Brown
This tapestry is woven with our hand-dyed Rio Grande 2-ply Tapestry Yarn. Enjoy!

Michal Anne wove this beautiful striped rug on a Schacht Mighty Wolf Loom using our Hand-dyed Rug Yarn as weft and a locally spun Churro warp. We love it, Michal Anne!

Here are two beautiful tapestries from Rachel’s Interweave Series. Both are woven of natural handspun Churro wool. Notice the fine strip of black (in Interweave White) and white (in Interweave Black) separating the the sections of the design. Enjoy!

I had a beautiful morning at the Dye Studio today! The snow was melting, the birds were chirping and each color seemed to brighten up the February landscape just a little bit more…
