Band Weaving Yarns
I have had a bit of a difficult time trying to source yarns that are suitable for Sami style band weaving. So I decided to dye some of my own. The yarn is sourced locally in the UK and is spun from British Blue Faced Leicester wool which has a long staple and a natural sheen to the yarn.

Traditionally, the background weave on Sami style belts and bands was a natural cotton or wool yarn.
