In Arusha there is an amazing team of people carrying out incredible work enabling children from all over Tanzania to recover from corrective surgery, orthopaedic surgery, plastic surgery or neurosurgery for a disability. The Plaster House believes that no child in Tanzania should live with a treatable disability and was founded by Australian Sarah Rejman in 2008 to house children for all pre and post-operative care. On 2nd February in New Zealand, a group of passionate people are raising funds to build a new specialised rehabilitive playground for The Plaster House.We are very proud to be part of this fundraising project and thank-you to @lockhatters for the wonderful auction contribution of an Escorial hat. Our aim is to help spread the word about The Plaster House and how they not only heal individuals but transform communities. Just by taking the time to read and learn more about their work you make a contribution and one we would all be very grateful for - see more @theplasterhouse   www.plasterhouse.org Thank-you Kind regards, Olivia Radford .

What’s your favorite color or colors to spin? We make custom batts by request. This sumptuous batt is a blend of our hand-dyed Leicester Longwool blended with a little bit of brown Corriedale. It’s amazing what you can do with wool. #wooliscool #growmorewool #choosewool #womeninag #womenfarmers #spinnersofinstagram #knittersofinstagram #weaversofinstagram #feltersofinstagram #woolandthegang #wooladdict

it’s frostbite weather out there, kids. make sure you’ve got your woolens on! 🧦 p.s. maia drops on monday and alongside the release, the price for the #pleiadessocks collection will raise to its regular price of $45 from the current pre-order price of $35. so you’ve got the weekend to snag that if you want it - who else is excited for another year of (all-natural this time) socks?? 🙋🏻‍♀️
today’s #followfriday is a two-parter - @customwoolenmills and @livetextiles have been working together for several years now and thanks to megan’s expertise, the mill is now offering naturally dyed mule spinner yarns outside of their annual field & forage collection! 💙 a bit about each: @livetextiles , aka megan samms, is a mi’kmaw woman who primarily lives between treaty 8 territory in northern alberta and taku river tlingit territory along the bc/yukon border. she creates absolutely beautiful textiles and naturally dyes with foraged materials. she’s been working with @customwoolenmills , a family owned woolen mill using turn-of-the-(20th)-century machinery near carstairs, alberta, for several years on an annual exploration of local colour through their field & forage collection, which you can purchase through custom’s website. the mill uses wool from western canadian farmers and through wool growers, which collects wool from canadian farms🐑 fun fact: this year’s forage collection will be focusing on alberta’s fibreshed! while there’s no official organization for their fibreshed(s), alberta has a huge amount of activity happening between sheep and alpaca farms, natural dyers, multiple mills, and hunters, and i’m very excited to delve into it a bit more over the coming months. this yarn is a little sneak peek of what’s to come for this year’s pattern collection...
La lana cardada y conformada en secciones, pasa a la continua de hilar Aquí os mostramos un detalle de la misma, justo el paso previo a que la lana sea retorcida por los husos y se conforme el hilo propiamente dicho Parte de la magia de cada hilo reside en estas máquinas donde se decide qué grosor tendrán o que tensión se les dará, dependiendo de a qué irán destinados #lanaespañola #choosewool #merinowool #madeinSpain #lana #wool #fashiongram #frio #dLana #dlanayarn #oveja #wooltelling #industriatextilnacional #thetruthaboutwool
TEASE. This beautiful lambswool from @fernhillfibre went to the mill today. I’m having it made into something beautiful, and I’ll tell you more in a few weeks! I love those sun-bleached tips, the molasses brown colour and the fine, satisfying crimp. Fine, perfect fleece from animals that are born and raised outdoors, feeding from the land and regenerating it in the process. You can susbscribe to my newsletter and/or podcast if you want to hear more about this soon! Both links are in my profile.
Happy Friday! My latest project includes doing many of my favourite things. I first dyed some lovely #shetlandwool and #mulberrysilk in a blue green tonal. I then went to my #majacraft blending board and blended my fibre into rolags and batts. I then spun this wool on my wheel and made a 2ply yarn which I then put on my weaving loom and wove an extremely long 1.25” strip of tabby. This strip was then cut into many strips which I am now weaving for a textured fabric. Fun fun fun! . . . #inspiredbyshetland #spinnersofinstagram #spin15aday #spinningaddict #fiberaddict #igspinners #spinningyarn #yarnaddict #handspunyarn #yarn #handspun #homespun #imakeyarn #spinningfiber #woolfiber #spinningwool #choosewool #campaignforwool #fiberarts #knittersofinstagram #dyersofinstagram #weaversofinstagram #eldamato #thisiswhatido

EEE! Brace yourselves, story time. Remember that time on Nov. 5, 2016 where I was so excited about my haul of 6 fleeces that I bought myself for my birthday from @nefiberfestival ? I had just learned to spin. That haul included 2 Icelandic, 3 alpaca, and 1 llama fleece. I stored them in air tight, waterproof buckets with silicone packets, and I had even begun to wash the Icelandic locks one by one. Well, the following January we up and moved from Vermont to Virginia and I lost two of the 6 when my car was stolen not even a week into living in Virginia. I kick myself almost daily for toting those around with me in my car. They were silver and they were gorgeous. I immediately took the remaining 4 to the Central Virginia Fiber Mill to be processed into roving. . . Well yesterday I got them back and I'm excited and all warm and fuzzy (literally) all over again. I had forgotten just how gorgeous those fleeces were. I mean, do you see that mahogany alpaca? To. Die. For. I'm pumped to get my wheel working overtime. Do you have a favorite story about fleeces you've coveted? I need to know. . . Clockwise from upper left: Icelandic lopi, black llama with a smidgen of black Merino to help it card, charcoal alpaca, and mahogany alpaca. . . #weaversofinstagram #spinnersofinstagram #spinstagram #handwoven #handspun #vamade #weaversofva #textiledesign #sustainablefashion #slowfashion #sustainabletextiles #choosewool #alpaca #llama #icelandicsheep

we’re heading back into a cold snap and my parents are going to puppysit for me over the weekend, which is super helpful because she gets antsy without longer walks/being able to do her “zoomies”, and going around the block just isn’t as helpful for her as running around like a cheetah in the backyard for three minutes before her paws freeze up. i’m going to take advantage of the reprieve to sew my #metamorphicdress in between class teaching, since sewing with a big antsy pup is still something we’re working on (anyone have tips/tricks for getting your clingy pup to back off and stay while you’re working with the iron on or needles around?) ✂️ honestly, knitwear design is probably one of the least time-efficient careers someone could ever choose. i know a few designers who farm out all their sample knitting, but i personally rarely get help with samples because a) it’s an extra cost on something that already doesn’t pay me for my time b) i hate the paperwork side of design and probably wouldn’t bother designing if i couldn’t knit c) i love to knit and d) if i get bored with a sample or make adjustments to my original plans, i take that into consideration when i write the final pattern. also, my brain doesn’t work super well at constructing an entire pattern without any hands-on work with it - socks are probably the only semi-exception to that, and the occasional shawl where i feel confident in the vision and know the construction and math will easily work out. even with this design here, i came up with the border after i’d knit the rest of the body and wasn’t 100% convinced of my choice until i was about 2/3 through the border and saw how it was working out. all this to say, that i’m releasing a collection of 12 new patterns on my birthday in april, and i’m about 2 and a half weeks behind on my knitting, and it kinda sucks. i’m going to try redoing my #slowbusinessexperiment from @hannalisahaferkamp and restrict social media to 30 minutes/day for a bit so i focus more and scroll mindlessly less. more intentional usage, less puppies in my explore feed for an hour 🤷🏻‍♀️ we’ll see how i do...

Knitting with chunky wool is one of my favorite ways to enjoy texture. The patterns are bold and detailed and the softness of Alpaca/wool blends is pretty great.

“Hello everyone, Dumpy here! I’m feeling quite jolly this morning and although my mouth is sore, it already feels less swollen. I’ve been a good boy and eaten my breakfast, AND had Weetabix with something called medicine on it AND had some hay from the hayrack 😊 I’m quite tough you know! And I’m really grateful that all of you sent me such lovely messages yesterday for my surgery with my favourite vet @charlottey_h - Mum has been reading them to me but she’s busy with work at the moment so asked me to come on here myself to say thank you.

Hands at Work; on to knitwear this clip shows the work in progress to knit a jumper by machine operated manually - ‘the easier part of the process…..’ and then linking, each stitch has to be matched up with one of the linking points, it is crucial not to miss a single stitch as this process stops the knitting from unravelling! ⠀ ⠀ #ChooseWool #wool #knitting #workinprogress #madebyhand #knittingmachine #jumper #sweater #designer #maker #madeinscotland #makingprocess #madeintheuk #textiles #knitwear ⠀ ⠀ 🎥 @collingwoodnorris 🧶💚🐑

Wool makes you sleep like a baby because of its natural qualities. It diffuses pressure points, provides good insulation and absorbs perspiration (better than other textiles 😉). #choosewool #sleep #sustainable #bedding #wool #wooliscool #health
Reposted from @wildandwool - I have been out foraging with my dogs Piper & Millie this morning in beautiful sunshine. I wanted to make this hedgerow wreath to display Sunny who I hope you have guessed is a great tit! 🌿 The male’s double note song is one of the most familiar sounds of Spring. A typical great tit has over 40 variations of his song and apparently birds with the greatest repertoire enjoy the most success with the girls! I am planning to use Sunny in a Mother’s Day card using a floral wreath like this and would love to hear your thoughts? #Springscene #needlefelting #needlefeltedgreattit #needlefelted #woolsculpture #birdsofinstagram #wildandwool #greattit #hedgerowwreath #handmade #handsewn #wildflowers #smallbusiness #madeinBath #choosewool #mycreativelife #uniquecharacters - #regrann
