Caroline has been weaving since her teens and has woven floor rugs, curtains, cloth, wraps and scarves but now specialises in silk scarves woven in complex patterns. 

Apart from the occasional ‘lucky find’ her 100% spun silk yarn is brought in the undyed state and dyed by her to the colours desired for the next piece to be woven. 

Caroline achieves her colours with both synthetic and natural dyes. 

Ideas for a design can come from almost anywhere, but especially nature: autumn trees, birds’ plumage, flowers, fish, and the sky are particularly rich sources of inspiration.
