Description

Shibori is the generic term for cloth resisted for dying; stitched resist is one of the ways to control folding. Traditional nui shibori is stitched by hand, then gathered and dyed. Different types of stitches can be used and stitching in a curved line is possible.

The simplest stitch is the running stitch, and this can be accomplished in weaving by weaving parallel gathering threads in a pattern. These gathering threads are removed after the piece is gathered and dyed.

This scarf was woven in a twill ground with overshot pattern. the twill gives nice drape. The warp is mixed hemp and cotton, and the weft is Dye-Lishus cotton. The patterned portion was gathered then the scarf was dyed using dye made from black walnuts gather from a tree.

Cotton! I spin it, weave it, and dye it with natural dyes. The spinning is very meditative, weaving gets my creative juices flowing, and the dyepot and marbling tray give the same joy as of a new discovery. I think every child should know by the time they are 9 what it is their hands like to do. My hands like fibery things and plants, and so I spin, weave, dye, and grow my dye garden. I love sharing my knowledge and strive to involve the community in my explorations.
