Back to black

     I was very lucky this time with the photographs of my work. My dear friend Ingrid and stunning model agreed to help me and we actually had a lot of fun during the photo shut and after. Some pictures are taken in old Nicosia very near to Green Line which separates our island. 
     Winter feels cold for us here after 45 C summer; so I was working on some warm wraps. This time I used wool yarn (got plenty and keep buying it), Blue Faced Leicester, 18 mc Merino wool, Gotland locks, viscose fibers and various silks. I don't think I will use Gotland again for wearable's; it is very hairy and needs a lot of work but at the same time its texture is amazing. And I really should stop buying anymore yarn; just can't walk away from pretty texture and colors:))




  1. Gorgeous artpiece and charming model as well the beautiful backdrop. Love the shinning effect on the black/dark blue.

  2. Dear Terriea, thank you so much for your kind comment, it is always very special to me !

  3. I like the texture of the Gotland wool too - were you using fine or coarse fibre? I have just ordered some very soft, fine Gotland lambswool for Vilte's workshop in Australia in 2 weeks time and am hoping it will be OK to use. X Anne

    1. Dear Anne,thank you very much! I used coarse Gotland Iceland from Germany. Love the texture,but a lot of work after,and my silk was only 3mm,too thin for these locks. Your fine wool will be perfect for the workshop,very happy for you to get there and spend nice time working with Vilte. Please send Vilte my regards and enjoy it! Tatiana xx
