Hand spun and home made

What if…I could spin enough fiber into yarn, and then weave and sew, or knit, most of my clothing and household textiles…

If not today, then soon. Spinning the yarn is the weakest part of the plan. I’m not that fast at spinning fine, plain yarn. Weaving and sewing don’t daunt me.

Since my time is still constrained by work for a few more years, it is going to be a slow transition. Weaving and sewing first, then more and more hand spun. I don’t know if I will ever choose to spin cotton and linen for towels or curtains, but I certainly will weave them.

What do I have so far?

Hand spun and home made:
–three berets

Some hand spun and home made:
–coat
–table runner

Home made with purchased yarn
–table runner
–two tote bags
–shrug
–three pairs of socks
–fingerless gloves
–two shawls
–countless scarves

I can see that I need skirts and tunics. Good. My current weaving project is fabric for a tunic. There’s a fair bit of hand spun in it.
