Barb Livingston, Textiles
A life-long Iowan and resident of Marshalltown, Barb’s interest in textile design spans from weaving, spinning, and knitting. Her silk scarves begin with 100% pure silk and hand-carded merino wool. The process of felting is used to marry the two fibers into one.
A variety of techniques are used to embellish the scarves, including hand dying, painting, and stitching. The end product is sturdy, hand-washable, tolerant to a cool iron, and highly enjoyable.
