Marilyn Andersen's Profile
While studying architecture at Iowa State University I became enthralled with textiles during the process of designing a weaving studio for a class project. I took a few weaving courses at ISU and have added to my textile knowledge through self study. I enjoy all aspects of the weaving process from raising the fiber animals, shearing, spinning and dyeing to weaving a useful object. My hand spun yarns find their way into hand knitted items and the fibers from my llamas and angora goats are used in felted items. In addition to the natural fibers, I weave many cotton rugs using new and recycled fabrics. I love working with you to create something that coordinates with your home or office.
All my work is done in an old chicken house on our acreage that has been repurposed to a studio space. I have several floor looms and multiple spinning wheels. I can watch our llamas, angora goats and chickens…
