CLF 2022 Auction: Twined Buffalo Wool and Nettle Fiber Bag by Beverly Simpson

 

Spare flints, extra balls, turnscrew; it seems that every black powder shooter has too many extra supplies rattling around in his pouch. Fortunately, a very special donation to this year’s CLF Fundraising Auction will help fix the dilemma of every muzzleloading enthusiast.


Artist Beverly Simpson is one of the Women Artists of the CLA group who created a piece for this year’s Auction.  Her twined bag is a small, multi-use piece that will fit nicely into your shooting bag, or, for that matter, in your wife’s purse. Simpson started the project with a mix of hand-spun buffalo wool and nettle fibers, which she then twined on a twining frame. This delightful and attractive piece is further decorated with brain-tanned deerskin binding and silver
