a fibre fanatic’s shopping list

October 19, 2011

just a little shopping, a nice bone folder and a sturdy awl

the new “Hand/Eye” magazine, Global Colour


the pictures are gorgeous







“Ajrakh – patterns and borders” from the Anokhi Museum of Hand Printing. It has 3 fabric samples. What do you think of pre-treating cotton with a mixture of castor oil, soda ash and camel dung?



2 disc set DVD, Michel Garcia’s “Natural Dye Workshop”,3 hours  in English with an introduction by Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada. Filmed in Provence, France.

and – 122 gm. of a silk /camel fibre blend that will go beautifully with the muga silk I’m still spinning.

no, I’m not going to eat these!

    I ordered a copy of the ‘Hand/dye’ magazine, last issue on colour, I should receive it today, I am thrilled. Thanks for the hint.
    I have been to Jaipur but not to the Anhoki museum, another trip to join!
    What a yummy post, could have been my shopping list too.
