We have decided to open a small shop to offer some of Åsas handwoven textiles and Martins small tools for weaving. The Read more is a link to our home site with more to read (in swedish) about the items. Soon we hope we can also offer some single wool yarns, suitable for medieval weaving, both warpspun and more loose spun for the weft, and later on both S-spun and Z-spun weaving yarn.

We will participate in the Battle of Wisby - for the third time.

All prizes in SEK incl VAT. Contact us on e-mail (Martin Eriksson) for terms of delivery. Note that some of the items we can not send by mail.
