This add-on kit is available to those that are joining us for our Pibione Tapestry Weaving Workshop with Lindsey Campbell. It ships free and in original workshop boxes if purchased before August 31st.
If you’re looking forward to our September workshop and are ready to dive into an even more intricate form of Pibione weaving, we’ve built an add-on kit to explore. Working with thinner yarn means you can create even more intricate designs and patterns, the final tapestry is beautiful as a wall hanging but could be transformed into a cushion or even table runner. With this materials kit, you’ll use the same loom, dowel, needle and technique as with the chunky yarn found in our original workshop. This add-on kit is accompanied by slightly adjusted instructions (with visuals) to guide you as you go.
In addition to a beautiful new intricate pattern, we’re focusing on a special hand-spun yarn as a feature for this tapestry. Lindsey has chosen a single ply wool that’s sustainably produced by weavers in Morocco.
Atlas Wool Supply Co. began as an Anou initiative to address the lack of quality, non-toxic yarn for weavers in Morocco. Today, the company is expanding to offer a variety of wool supplies for weavers and fiber art and craft enthusiasts around the world.
The wool for our hand-spun yarn is sourced from shepherds in the Middle and High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Atlas Wool Supply seeks out shepherds who maintain healthy flocks of breed-specific indigenous sheep so yarns are made from 100% Moroccan wool. The team supervises shearing and gathers the wool to distribute to spinners across the Anou community.
Atlas Wool Supply always pays above market price for raw wool and well above minimum wage for wool processing, spinning, and dye work to ensure valued employment opportunities for those working in the artisan sector.
This materials kit includes:
-A 50 gram skein of natural, hand-spun, single ply Moroccan wool sourced from the Atlas Mountains and spun by Anou artisans
-A skein of cotton warp string
-A hanging dowel
-Suede cording for hanging
-A new intricate pattern with visual instructions for a neutral Pibione tapestry
We are so excited to see what you’ll create. Happy making, everyone.
