The colour of life and death. A colour worn for protection, especially when travelling.


Cone dying yarn. A whole cone of yarn is submerged in a dye bath of red, so that the outer layers are dyed darker and where the dye cannot penetrate the inner layers get paler and paler until there is hardly any colour left.

I weave with the yarn and as the shuttle travels back and forth forming the cloth the colour gradually leaches out.



  1. Wow! I recently read about cone-dyed yarn, and enjoyed seeing what you did with it. Ten years ago, I painted several warps, and am just now having the courage to use some of the irreplaceable yarn.
