I am a designer/weaver who loves to use natural yarns in my work. I am researching the beautiful folk bands from the Baltic region. After visiting Sweden to examine the wealth of woven treasures in various museums, I became particularly interested in Sámi weaving. I have analysed many of their beautiful bands to enable them to be appreciated by a wider audience.
