Hydrangea Top


Hydrangea Top detail

Hydrangea Top

Made in panels with different textured stitch patterns. The yarns are silk and chenille – hand dyed with different amounts of the same series of colours, so as to enable semi-controlled placement of the colours

New Grange Sweater detail

 

NewGrange Sweater

Previously hand dyed fleece, using seven different plants in six differently mordanted states, was carded and spun so as to produce both plain colours and variegated sequences

The whole sweater was made in-the-round in one piece … too complicated to describe how here, though – ha!

The design was inspired by the carvings on the stones at the neolithic burial mound at New Grange, outside Dublin

(Sorry – no complete picture yet!)

Delphos Top detail

 

Delphos Top

Four strands of fine, hand dyed silk – mostly variegated – were used together; one strand only was changed every row. (NB The rows of the fabric as made and worn run from top to bottom, not from side to side)
