New Collection Coming Soon!
Yarn for the new collection has arrived! This very special wool comes to us from the Bi Daüü cooperative, a group of Zapotec artisans from Teotitán del Valle in the state of Oaxaca in Mexico. After being spun and naturally dyed using cochineal and indigo, the yarn was sent to Philadelphia to be wound on cones in order to pass through the Weaving Mill’s dobby loom. Next we are waiting on some adjustments to the loom to accomodate this very special yarn. Meanwhile, the Weaving Mill’s Emily Winter will be working up some yardage on her hand loom, engineered especially for the silhouettes we will make with it.
This project is funded by a grant from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. Keep an eye out for the launch of the collection sometime this summer!
