David Gentzsch of Ozark Handspun is one of our all-time favorite people, and he graced us with a visit this weekend. The beauty you see in the bowl, above, is his creation. On Saturday we got to watch it happen.
He made it seem so simple, with just a bubbling pot, some silk scarves and spun wool.
This had been a pure white, silk, scarf. The impressionistic results were stunning.
Another reason we love David’s visits is all the great stuff he brings with him. This time he brought the most amazing things I have ever seen. The photos, below, show a Giant Silk Hankie. If you are familiar with these hankies, you’ve probably seen MUCH smaller versions. These enormous ones are large enough to be blankets, and what a delight it would be to curl up in one!
This skein was an over-dye that surprised us all. Oh, if it could only be reproduced.
Ellen consented to model a luscious lavender mane for us. These are rare, but they present endless creative opportunities. If you would like to work with one, give us a call as we try to always have a few on hand.
