I have always held a passion for fine weaving. When browsing for a new scarf this Fall, I was immediately struck by the uniqueness of this one. I was engaged by the color transitions, the definitive progressions which could— and did—invoke a story. This is wonderful wearable art! A ‘statement’ piece with a visual voice.

This scarf is ah-mazing. The craftsmanship and artistry are incredible and attention to detail in packaging and care instructions couldn't be surpassed. My MIL will be so pleased. Thanks again.

About

Luxury Handwovens from Handspun Yarns

You might find me in a quiet corner of a cafe, spinning yarn on a drop spindle. Spinning, while the world goes on all around me, is my favorite way to achieve a state of clarity. In addition to a mental re-boot, I get a one-of-a-kind yarn stash ready for use at the loom, a cherished gift from my mother. (I also do some wheel spinning, when I can snatch my dear husband's favorite chair away from him.)

Color, pattern and texture--and their interplay--intrigue me. I work slowly, savoring every part of the design process, and I love adding little surprise elements to each piece. My textiles are deliberately quirky, but special. The plied fringes I like to make are twisted by hand, a minimum of 100 times each, for a secure finish. Every bit of yarn in an m.m. handwoven has traveled through my hands--and been loved--many, many times! See more about my process and the things that inspire me at http://mmhaber.tumblr.com/.

Fiber artist Morna Crites-Moore received one of my scarves as a gift and had this to say: http://www.mornacrites-moore.com/blog/2015/01/01abelatedbrag

I have another shop on Etsy, The Covert Laundry Society, which features vintage items. Please visit http://www.etsy.com/shop/CovertLaundrySociety?ref=s2-header-shopname.

Please visit my shop often. And if you see me in the cafe, stop and chat!

    I began weaving in 1998 when my mother gave me her loom. Ten years later, I bought my first drop spindle; and in 2010, my husband gave me a beautiful spinning wheel. The whole house is my studio, but I dream of having a weaver's cottage out back.
