Finished a lovely custom warp for a wonderful mama ❤️ Four pieces - two with hand dyed cotton / hemp from Saltwater Rose, two with black 60% silk, 40% wool. The warp is Bockens 8/2 Egyptian cotton, hand painted.
16/6ne Saltwater Rose supima mixed with pima cotton warp, hand dyed. Weft is handspun by me from Shunklies Fibre Studio “Wild Rose Garden” batts, merino / silk / rose blend plied with linen / viscose / silk commercial singles. Wicked custom for a little forest loving princess. 3.7m plus fringe :)
Welcome to Karelia Crafted! What you’re seeing here is a one woman operated business in Tuupovaara, North Karelia, Finland, that is focused mainly on custom made handwoven baby wraps. 2019 is the year wings will be spread to cover more of the world of fibery goodness - hand dyed warps, handwoven accessories, handspun yarns, hand dyed yarns and hand spinning fibers will be just some of the things coming up soon or already listed at the webshop . Links to a gallery of some of my work, pricing and my webshop, instagram and Facebook can be found on the top of the page. On the left you will find a menu that will soon include also care instructions, some of the popular weaving patterns and many other nice things. Browse below for my blog. Hope you enjoy this dive into fiber arts with me. -Iina (that’s a double i - pronounced like Tina without the T)
Long time no posts. I’ve started open university studies in hopes of getting a degree in psychology, eventually. So I’m weaving less, but I am weaving - and I’m about to open my books soon! 1-2 slots for a semi custom will be available shortly. I’m doing a short full custom warp after that - but then it’s fair game for everyone. I do like picking my projects based on what I enjoy working with. I like having a collage for colours and some suggestions for materials. I won’t be the weaver who can clearly colour chart and sample your shades - I paint my yarns quite liberally with a little pinch of this or that dye. Full custom warps have a minimum order length of 9 meters. If you don’t need that much for yourself, you can split a warp with a friend or a few. Or - if I won’t be booked for full custom warps I will advertise split custom dyed warps, where a partial length of the warp is dyed to your specifications while the warp materials and patterns will be shared.
