Woolblancet - WOLLI

I dyed blanket wool yarns with natural materials with alum and rautavitriil mordant. I used for example. nettle, shell of appletree, verihelttaseitikin and shell of onion contained pigments. All the colors shown in the picture are slef-dyed.

I assembled the loom, planned the blanket colours, tied up yarns and then threaded the warp yarns to the reed. I created the blanket with an interwoven pattern. Weaving took about 10h.
