Before I start weaving I create my designs using an Excel spreadsheet or a weaving software package. Once the design is completed, I convert the design into an actual plan which can be implemented on the loom.
I also use my own hand dyed yarn from my sheep. Blankets, rugs, tapestries, and scarves include additional touches such as hemstitching, fringing, and washing.
I use cotton, tencel, wool, alpaca, and silk in my textiles.
