Guest: Fonnie from Sheep Shop Yarn Co.
Fonnie talks to us about Sheep Feet, the new hand dyed sock yarn from Sheep Shop. This machine washable yarn is super soft in the skein and even softer when washed!
Fonnie also shares with us her process for deciding what is next in the Sheep Shop line.
Leslie Ann Chats with Kathy about Rigid Heddle Weaving
We’re very excited about the Schacht Flip Rigid Heddle loom, and have encouraged people to try it out! It’s a great way to try your hand at weaving.
A rigid heddle loom is the simplest loom, other than weaving in and out every warp. The heddle holds the warp threads up, so you can pass the shuttle through many threads at once instead of one. It’s a very affordable investment in terms of weaving. The Flip loom does fold, so it’s easy to transport and store.
You can create many projects with the rigid heddle loom, and projects that use the stash that many of us already have.
Leslie Ann has used many, many knitting yarns. In fact, she has used, almost exclusively, knitting yarns, specifically hand painted yarns. The hand painted yarns provide interest without a lot of work. Weaving does not use a lot of yarn. Many scarves can be made with just one skein. Misti Alpaca Sock Yarn, Sheep Shop Sheep 3, and many Valley Yarns have made fantastic projects!
Weaving is also incredibly fast. You can set up and complete a scarf is less than 5 hours!
