Hard Boiled Designs

Before I make clothing, I make fabric. Using a hand powered knitting machine and locally sourced wool and alpaca yarns, I knit yards and yards of fabric that I then shrink to produce boiled wool.  


This fabric is warm, durable and well suited to life here in Maine.  By using hand dying, fabric manipulation and piecing,


I create hats, wraps, jackets and vests that span both style and functionality.  Pieces are finished with silk seam treatments and hand sewing to create garments that will provide pleasure and comfort for years to come.
