Elm Tree Wool Weaving
This is a decorative piece, ready to hang on the wall. I was inspired by the Siberian Elm tree that is in my yard. I love that tree because it provides lots of shade in the summer and food and medicine for my sheep. The sheep love to eat the flowers in the Spring, the leaves in the summer and the bark in the winter.
I used an apple branch to frame, it is 18 inches long. The weaving itself is 12 inches wide. The whole piece is about 17 inches long.
The blue color was made by dyeing the wool with the hollyhock flowers, the yellow is from the aspen leaves in the Fall. The trunk is actually nettle fibers that my brother made for me.
