An A-Z of weaving plant fibres

Plant fibres are amazing things, especially when you can use them to weave! So I have decided to go on a journey to discover which of these particular fibres grow in our gardens around the Sunshine Coast. The local Sunshine Coast Council has come to the party too, by granting me a RADF grant to complete the project…yay!!!
What will follow here is an outcome of this project – a blog about plants I’ve encountered in my search for weaving fibres… an A-Z of suitable (and possibly not too suitable fibres) as I pull, twist, shred and coil my way around the coast. As I commune with nature and uncover her weaving secrets… keep tuned…. A is on its way!!!

    Hi Rene, I’ve been after instructions for preparing inflorescence for weaving with no luck. Do you have a post about preparing fibres for weaving? Like the drying and softening processes for a few different fibres? Thanks.

    Rene, I cant wait to see the results from your journey of discovery. I live in Western Australia and would love to do the same here one day. Good Luck and enjoy the ride.
