Well here we go with my latest learning curve creating this blog. Firstly thank you for taking the time to read it and I hope I may be able to encourage you in your textile adventures. Earlier this year I visited Tibet, Nepal, India & Kashmir. Tibet & Kashmir were the stand out countries as I have been to India a few times and Nepal.

Having read ‘The Kashmir Shawl’ Kashmir was on my hit list. I was privileged to visit some of Kashmir’s fine embroiderers. Traditionally the men and women are in different rooms and all sit on the floor to work. Some were spinning the finest wool yarn which was woven into beautiful summer weight blankets. Some were then embroidered with traditional designs. Hand spun, hand woven & hand embroidered. I brought home some cot size blankets, some embroidered and some plain so you can do your own designs. I bought a king size one for myself as I live where it is warm. To view Cot size baby blankets. Of course I bought the most beautiful Kashmir shawl totally covered with hand embroidery.
