I loved the idea of string! and found some organic biodegradable string from a local shop...this gave me the idea of playing with the stereotyped string vest
It took many hours to de-ply the strands of string to create a crochet lace weight yarn
Other fibres I chose to work with were banana fibre, bamboo and Soya silk
Some of the fibres I sourced from Wingham wools, Yorkshire and had my local spinners group spin it into suitable weights, before hand dyeing with natural dyes
This banana, possum and bamboo fibre yarn was dyed using beetroot.
I will be showing at this years Twisted Thread exhibitions......http://www.twistedthread.com/pages/exhibitions/listExhibitions.aspx
