I enjoy doing neckwears, either commissioned on a warp, or from leftovers on a warp.
I often get gifted or buy left-over yarn from other wearers in order to experience various types of fibres for weft. Weaving neckwears are my opportunities to learn and get familiar with fibres I don’t use for decorative artworks, for example, merino, silk merino, cashmere, etc.
There is a pride I take in seeing my work around someone’s neck, my artistic vision so close to one’s face. Neckwear humanises my work.
The Black Mamba series game me the opportunity to weave neckwear for clients and family. This one was made with a green tea modal weft.
One and a Thousand Loves
This was woven for a client to give to their mother. It makes use of the same inlay detailing that characterised the Black Mamba design.
These three cowls were woven from leftover yarns on the Black Mamba warp and provided an opportunity to experiment with dyework and yarns
