Homespun in a Distant Land


A new organic wool scarf that I crocheted during my quiet time in Sofia. The sort of accessory that brings me back to my childhood and winter afternoons listening to my mother's spinning wheel whirling non-stop from behind closed doors.

Thursday, January 22, also marks the beginning of the International Year of Natural Fibres. A celebration of all things sustainably wonderful about natural fibers and their production.
