Call For Submissions: Handwoven January/February 2021 – Yarns With Impact

I doubt we can fix any of the world’s problems with weaving, but maybe we can weave in a way that has a positive impact on our world.

Many of us try to live lives that have a positive impact on the environment; we try to help those in need, and we try to help the world and its people in other big or small ways. At the very least, we would like to think we aren’t making things worse.

Every year, the January/February issue of Handwoven is a yarn-centric issue, and January/February 2021 will be no exception. We decided it would be interesting and fun to see what our contributors could do with yarns that have impact. Maybe you want to weave with a yarn that doesn’t use many of the earth’s resources to produce or one that is made of recycled fibers or one that is spun and/or dyed by a member of a collective that helps women have a steady income and a roof over their heads. Or maybe you have another yarn in mind that has a positive impact on the world in some other way.

Here is the official description of the issue:

Not all yarns are created equal. Some yarns aren’t just fiber but are also part of a solution, whether it is helping others less fortunate or being good for the environment. This issue will focus on those special yarns that do good while looking great. We have chosen a slightly subdued palette for this winter issue: HW JF21 Color Palette
