5.5 Inch Grey Dream Catcher
This beautiful little 5.5 inch dream catcher is hand netted on a wild grapevine ring with hand spun thread. For this dream catcher, I used grey Shetland sheep's wool spun ultra fine. It is decorated with vintage glass beads and natural feathers.
This time, I'm going to tell a little about the sheep. Traditionally dream catchers are netted with sinew. I use hand spun yarns. The Shetland sheep produce a unique fiber that is perfect for dream catchers. It spins fine, firm, and crisp. These sheep originated on the harsh Shetland Islands along side of the Shetland pony. This wool was traditionally used in Shetland knitted lace and the Wedding Shawl.
