about - Lamb on the Loom, Cary, NC
My name is Pattie Lamb. My company name is Lamb on the Loom. I have been happily weaving and spinning for over 30 years. I especially love creating beautiful fabrics with a soft, luxurious hand that feel wonderful against the skin.
My favorite things to weave are handwoven scarves and shawls. I weave my scarves and shawls on one of several floor looms in a studio in my home. I work with luxurious yarns like silk, hand painted wool, tencel, bamboo, and my own homespun yarns. I choose weaving patterns to showcase the beauty of the yarns. Sometimes that is a simple 4 harness twill, sometimes a fancier pattern that requires as many as 16 harnesses to weave.
I also love weaving linens for the home, including table runners and towels. Most of these are woven with cotton and linen using traditional patterns.
I make smaller items as well: felt balls that are made entirely from wool, beaded felt ornaments, and key chain braids that are made from cotton using a ply-split braiding technique.
