Weaving Materials

Odd & End Naturals, Coiling Materials, Bark



Sorry, but due to the high cost of shipping, we no longer carry willow.

Currently, teneriffe rings for coiling are no longer available. However; we have recently acquired a pine needle teneriffe frame maker's stock. There will be a few forms available in the future, as we unpack and sort the stock.

Check back periodically for the listing.

Scroll down for the raffia buyout items. Madagascar raffia!
