Weaving with Cotton

At our Weavers Meeting last month, our program was about cotton. We are incredibly lucky that we have an expert couple who spin and weave with the handspun cotton.  Glenn spends many a morning using a Charkha to spin cotton

while his wife, Pat weaves the homespun cotton into towels, blankets, shawls.

They have several resources for their cotton roving.  Although they have handdyed their rovings, they have found a source they prefer to the uncertainties of color "dyelot" issues.
