Welcome to High Desert Weaving!

High Desert Weaving came into existence as a result of my desire for a boat shuttle that could hold a reasonably large amount of heavy rug yarn.. Unable to find anything on the market, I decided to build something that would meet my needs.  After sharing prototypes with, and getting feedback from several weavers my initial efforts morphed into a set of four different sized shuttles that can accommodate a wide range of needs. I hope you find them useful.

I am a rug and tapestry weaver, and I dye all of my own fiber. From time to time, I will be offering rugs for sale. In addition, I will be sharing information about dyeing with PRO Chemicals’s Sabraset {a.k.a. Lanaset) acid dyes. Specifically, I will be dedicating a portion of this site to the publication of the dye formulas that I have developed. Each formula specification will include an image of the end result. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me.     Allen
