Hand Woven Hair Bows

This page is a gallery of the hand-woven hair bows I've just put up in the Etsy shop. They are woven in exactly the same way as I wove the large bows in a previous article, only these are mounted on 39mm and 59mm barrette clips. Most of the wool is spun from soft Northern Ireland grown lambs wool.  Dyed with a variety of dyes, these particular bows are hand dyed with Kemtex dyes on the whole, although there are some wee bits of naturally dyed wool in there too.

One of the larger bows woven in my Up Cycled yarn (see my other posting) with hand spun pink cotton yarn for the stripe.
