Weaving Wool Tapestry Art

When it comes to adding warmth and texture to a space, there is nothing quite like a beautifully crafted wool tapestry.

What makes wool so special?

Wool is a versatile and durable material that has been used for centuries in textile art. Its natural fibers create a soft and luxurious texture, perfect for creating intricate designs and patterns. When woven together, these fibers form a strong and sturdy fabric that can withstand the test of time.

Some backstory on my recent weaving journey 

After spending quite some time weaving on a homemade loom, I got super excited when I received an Etsy gift card from a client. I had been looking at purchasing a Beka Grizzly Tapestry Loom for a while, and this little push seemed like the perfect timing. I am in love with my choice, especially for its versatility in size and easy adjustments. 

I got right to work with my new, giant loom and made coasters. Yep tini-tiny little coasters.

Why are small wool tapestries so impactful?

Despite their small size, wool tapestries have a big impact on a room. Their intricate details and rich textures draw the eye and create a focal point in any space. Whether tiny and useful like a coaster or hung decoratively on a wall, a small wool tapestry can add a touch of warmth and charm to your home.

So, if you're looking to add a splash of color and texture to your space, consider investing in a small but mighty wool tapestry. Not only will it brighten up your room, but it will also bring a touch of warmth and coziness to your home.

Life after coasters

It's like my brain couldn't quite wrap itself around the loom's capability for 36x60 inches of weaving. So the next time I set up the loom, I stretched my wings just a wee bit further, but nowhere near capacity. Here is a photo of the loom set up for Woven in Wool 2, a small tapestry that is currently available for purchase.

How can wool tapestries brighten up a space?

The vibrant colors and intricate designs of wool tapestries can bring a burst of energy to any room. Whether you choose a bold, colorful piece or a more subtle, neutral design, a wool tapestry can add a touch of personality and style to your space.

And here it is! Woven on my giant loom, the 12x8 inch behemoth tapestry I that created in wool and cotton and hung on a wood dowel. This small but mighty piece of wall art has the power to completely transform a room, adding a pop of color and a touch of coziness.
