The Camilla kit from Living Fibers come with all the materials you need to create your own beautiful tapestry, focusing on the technique of locker hooking, using only one needle. The yarns are all 100% natural and come from different textile communities in Peru. The kit is beautifully presented in a canvas bag making it a really thoughful gift for a crafty person.
Locker hooking is really similar to rug hooking, or punch needle and it uses a special needle to draw loops of yarn through a canvas. Camila is designed to showcase the true versatility of locker hooking and how you can create a complex and unique result. The design is influenced by the connective relationship between the elements of earth and water, it is both textured and knotted and uses a vibrant colour scheme.
Inside the Living Fibers canvas bag, you’ll find all the materials you need including; a printed stitch chart, a locker hook needle, a uniquely floral fabric ribbon, natural fluffy wool, hand-dyed wool, and natural cotton ribbon. The instructions are found through a QR code which you must scan with your phone camera - Mariana has created the most comprehensive set of instructions with loads of stunning images and videos to help you along the way.
