Malian Cotton

I felt the urge to share some undyed Malian cotton that I picked up at Romni Wools this week. It’s just too pretty and I’m about to dive into it and disturb its neat appearance. Romni’s basement is literally wall to wall and floor to ceiling cone yarn and fleece. I have to admit, I fell for this Malian cotton because it comes on a stick. I didn’t spend too much time pondering other options.

I’ve started a continuing ed Fibre Arts with Natural Dyes class at OCAD U and am preparing my materials for next week: wool and cotton yarns, and linen and silk fabrics. The course runs six weeks so I’ll be sure to share what I’m learning. This coming week, yellow!

The yarn is pictured on bookhou’s laurel tea towel, which I love. They’re made of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton – perfect for napkins and tea towels!

I have some knits to share as well, but as it’s inching towards 30 degrees here it feels kind of silly to be modelling wool knits. I don’t really vary my knitting projects by season. Do you?

Until next time – enjoy the weekend!
