This last Mother’s Day my son called from New Zealand and asked what would I like him to bring back. I said if he could find some Possum Yarn I would make him a scarf. I get the pleasure of using the possum yarn and he gets the scarf! I received two balls of a Possum Merino blend and four more of pure merino. The yarns are soft and luscious and I am looking forward to designing and weaving a scarf. This is probably a knitting yarn, but I am sure will work fine for weaving.
I recently had a visit with my good friend and weaver Ilse Leader. If you are visiting Salt Spring Island on June 19th or 20th, Ilse is having a show of her beautiful orignal woven and knitted garments and accessories.
