Wonderful Wool Creations

Some of you might already be familiar with artist Laurie Jacobi, but for the rest of you this will be an unexpected treat. Laurie designs the fabrics, which are woven in the mill in Pendleton, for her garments. Can you imagine being able to control the design to the point of how the design comes on the roll? This is one of the elements which set her work apart. You just don't see that kind of vision very often. We are always so excited to see her fabric come off the looms, not to mention the coordinating blankets and throws, and then to see how that fabric is transformed into garments of singular quality and artistry. Enjoy these recent photos Laurie sent of her new work, and visit her on her website.
