Backroad Textiles 
Francette Cerulli
581 Minister Brook Road
Worcester, VT  05682

I hand-knit seamless children’s and adults’ sweaters from wool, and from the soft colorful acrylics available for those who are wool-allergic.  Though I always knit with color harmony in mind, these sweaters are intended mainly for everyday practical use. My hand-knitted shawls range from large very warm ones to wispy, more inspirational shrugs.  Some  include naturally-dyed wool, and some are made from yarn I’ve spun myself, or bought from local spinners (see Osprey Hill Farm, above).  My wedding shawls range from ivory to bright white, with fiber from subtle to glittery.  Some are cozy, for chilly wedding days or evenings; others, made with lighter threads and more open patterning, are more suitable for warmer climates or seasons.  I welcome custom orders for both shawls and sweaters.  You can convo me through my website, e-mail me at cerulean49@gmail.com, or phone me.
