Entrelanas Designs

Entrelanas means “surrounded by yarn, immersed in yarn”. I started “entrelanas designs” in 2019, out of a desire to share my passion for working with wool and creating timeless and unique garments. I weave shawls, ruanas, ponchos and scarves with a small portable loom called “rigid heddle loom”, using pure wool that I normally spin and dye myself. My pieces are made to last for a long time. They are stylish, casual, comfortable and one-of-a-kind.

The Maker and Their Production Space
Each creation from entrelanas designs is entirely made by myself in my home studio in San Anselmo, California.

The Making Process
Most of the pieces start from a ball of pure Merino or Corriedale wool that is hand dyed with natural dyes, spun in a traditional spinning wheel and handwoven in a rigid heddle loom. Sometimes, the yarn used has already been spun and dyed and the process of creation involves only the design and weaving.

The Production Model
Each shawl, scarf, poncho or ruana is one-of-a-kind – no two pieces are identical. My production is small and slow, as I am the only person in my “factory”. All my creations are absolutely unique, either created in advance or custom made.

The Materials
I use high quality pure wool that comes from my home country, Uruguay. When I dye my yarn, I use either natural dyes (plants, flowers, food scraps) or acid dyes that are environmentally friendly and safe for the consumer. Sometimes, I use yarn that has been dyed already, and I know that it comes from a safe place as well. I reuse and repurpose even the smallest piece of yarn. Nothing is lost. All the leftovers from the loom will later be used for a different project as they are, or I will “re-card” them and spin them into something different. All the packaging I use to mail my orders is biodegradable and does not contaminate the environment.
