Microfiber pollution

Eileen Driscoll
 

The oceans are filling up with microfiber from polyester fleece.  Another reason to weave our own fabrics from natural fibers.

From The StoryOf Stuff website

Five years ago, European researcher Mark Browne released a groundbreaking study that found widespread microplastic pollution on shorelines and coastal waters around the world, particularly near densely populated areas. One significant source of this pollution was synthetic clothing fibers, less than 1 mm in size, that are discharged from clothes washers, through water treatment and into the environment.

Then in 2015, our friends at the San Francisco Estuary Institute released a study on microplastic pollution in San Francisco Bay, finding that on average, water treatment facilities released an estimated 7 million particles of microplastic per day into the Bay—the largest Pacific estuary in the Americas. The biggest sources were found to be plastic microbeads and, you guessed it, synthetic clothing fibers.

And then last summer, outdoor clothing company Patagonia released a U.C. Santa Barbara study it commissioned that found that a single fleece jacket could release as many as 250,000 plastic fibers!

Hi folks
I am “around” but bicycling in Chile for the month. I took my Scotland tour webpage off my site until I can get it updated later this winter.  There  is no tour in 2019. I will run a scotland tour in April 2020 and will get those dates set and up on the website later this winter.

In 2019 I am doing a lot of traveling,  working on a new body of weaving work and getting up to speed on my long arm quilting machine. So when I am home I am spending time in my studio versus on the computer.  

Cheers

Older computer-dobby looms

johnacord
 

In addition to support for Combby, J-Comp & Macomber looms, I've added repair of pre-2014 Louet.  The Combby Serial Converter is now plug in rather than installed inside.  All varieties now come standard with USB connection to the computer.

The hardware is now more adaptable to other loom types or homebuilt dobby looms, and can be provided with serial (9-pin) rather than USB if desired.

Information about these can be found at www.flatwaterfarm.com

Yes she is around but currently in Chile. Checking her email when she has service but extremely limited. I just purchased something from her and she was able to provide great customer service as soon as she could. 
Keep trying her email.  You should get an automated response letting you know same info.

My local study group is going to focus on variegated yarns this year.   Does anyone know of terms used to describe these multi-colored yarns?  I have a feeling that communication may be one of the larger issues we will need to deal with.

Are you looking for generally commercial options? If not, as a spinner and knitter I can think of gradients, handpainted, humbug, space dyed, ikat, barberpole, ... And within hand or dip dyes there's regular and irregular repeats. All for starters ?? Even the traditional "variegated" yarns could be in a variety of color options as different as the places on a color wheel. If you want to go in that direction try researching color theory to learn primaries, secondaries, tertiaries, etc.

Re: Vocabulary help

Handwerks
 

Also there is ‘sprinkle dyed’ which gives a speckled appearance when dye powders are applied directly.
Hot vs Cold pour method, where colors bleed into one another vs staying put and distinct.
Overdyeing, dyeing in layers of color and/or dyeing yarns that are not white to begin with.
Long repeat dyeing with/on very long skeins.

Re: Vocabulary help

It may also be helpful to distinguish what is not variegated. I start my Hand Paint Magic spinning and knitting classes by defining solid color yarn, semi-solid yarn (one color but a variety of saturation) and hand painted yarn.
There are so many varieties of commercial yarns available now, I would be very interested in learning the industrial vocabulary for some of these yarns - distinguishing self patterning sock yarn for instance from the Kureyon /Kauni very slow color shift, and many other variations.
