I am Neal Howard, a professional weaver and dyer of silk and silk/merino blend yarns since 1989.
In the Smoky Mountains of Western North Carolina, I handweave scarves and shawls from these wonderful materials using a dye and resist technique called woven shibori.
I also offer these luxury fibers - space-dyed with acid dyes by me! - in kits to weave, knit, or crochet.
