Welcome to Muffy Young Handweaving and Cloth Design

I have been a handweaver and dyer since 1978. These scarves and shawls are all hand woven and hand dyed. My loom has 24 harnesses instead of the more usual 4 or 8. This allows me to design highly complex structures, and to combine them in a single piece for intriguing variations in scale, texture, and motif. My designs are original, unique, and innovative, with images inspired by nature, modernism, and the fabrics of Latin American, Central Asia, and Africa. Guided by the weave structure, I select silk fibers to maximize visual impact and to balance drape and stability. Hand-dying my yarns gives me complete control of my color palette. My passion is to create refined scarves and shawls that are beautiful to look at and comfortable to wear.
