Weekly Photo Challenge: Fray


My father-in-law used to be a Harris Tweed weaver and it was common for the “wastage” to be made into blankets for the weaver’s home. We were given one of these blankets but after moths discovered it the blanket began to fray in patches all over. It’s now useless but I can’t throw it out.

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”

    1. I just wish I’d realized it was happening before so much damage was done. I hope the moths appreciated the flavour of top quality Harris Tweed.

  1. This damn moths, I have exactly the same problem with a rug that was handspun and crocheted by my mother. Can’t let go of it.

      1. Just having a little chuckle to myself as I picture my daughter finding a pile of fragments and threads in the bottom of the cupboard and wondering what on earth it could possibly have been.

So, what do you think?
