Aren’t they adorable? I’m looking forward to adding a new line to the shop! I’m dreaming of bunnies and fairies and kitties and so many sweet dolls.

About

Handweaving and Homesteading in Alaska

Hello! Welcome! I'm a one-woman weaving studio in Fairbanks, Alaska making baby wraps and heirloom textiles. I weave and dye and spin (and garden and wildcraft and raise tiny humans!) in a log cabin in the woods past the river.

I blog at www.14milefarm.com

If you're interested in BABY WRAPS - join me in my Facebook chatter group for my new babywearing brand Cauldron & Cloth : www.facebook.com/groups/cauldronandcloth. Baby wrap sales are almost exclusively done through the chatter, and you'll get exclusive opportunities to buy other pieces as well <3

All baby wraps and children's and baby items are CPSC compliant.

Weaving is to me so much more than the meticulous and challenging craft with ever-more to learn, it is more than the artistic and imaginative playground of color and fiber and draft and the million ways they intersect. It is more even than Art (with a capital A, lol). I came to weaving long before I came to babywearing. Weaving, to me, is very much a microcosmic expression of the whole glorious mysterious too-large-to-comprehend macrocosm that we live in. Weaving is intertwined with Fate and Grace and the 'fabric of the universe" in a myriad of mythologies - Navajo and Nordic come first to mind. By ordering and care-taking and expressing that which is beautiful, by engaging mindfully with the interlacement of threads, by approaching the loom as an act of cultivating metta: in tending the reflection of the universe on a small scale I am tending the reflection of the universe on a large scale. In that way, weaving is very much a part of my spiritual practice. It is a huge added bonus that the pieces which come off of my loom get to fly out into the world and support the precious bond between mother (or parent!) and child, comfort women newly emerged from the chrysalis of pregnancy into motherhood when the days and moments are rough and painful, and celebrate with them when the days and moments are ecstatic or merely smooth.

And if were a wrap? I would be a cotton warp with a tencel weft - easy care and practical for the mess of family life, hiking, and homesteading but with the shine and elegance of fairytale silk.

    Hi. I'm a mama and a weaver living in a log cabin in the woods in the far North. I garden and cook and wander the woods and practice herbal medicine and teach yoga. I follow the moon and cultivate magic and believe in Beauty.
