Y is for Yarn

Y is for Yarn

As I hand weave the straps for many of the bags, the yarns used for inkle weaving are usually cotton or cotton blends, both for strength and durability, and the finished strap will not stretch. Sometimes I use bamboo and linen dependng on availability of colour which is the first thing I think of when choosing yarn – usually this depends on matching fabric colour, print and embroidery details. I almost always buy

locally from shops as I like to feel the yarn, and sometimes the colours on a screen vary significantly when purchased online. I use the same principle when buying fabric, the feel and handle is very important.
