Papilionaceous – The Start Bay Silk Weavers
Papilionaceous moved to the beautiful Start Bay area of South Devon in February 2001.
The wide open spaces, the ever changing sea and the relaxed pace of life all seem to complement the very detailed discipline of silk weaving.

For those who really couldn’t decide which ribbon to take for their hair, they are here, along with more on the rest of the display.
Papilionaceous will be at the Knitting and Stitching Show, Alexandra Palace next month.
It runs from 9th – 12th October and will be our first visit to this London show.
