Season 3 Episode 9 - PW with Supplementary Warp & Weft
Welcome back to Season 3 Episode 9! This episode continues to build on everything we have done so far this year. It adds some very rich sauce to our plate of pasta! 🙂
Dr. Seuss could have written a children’s book about it….Oh the places you’ll go!
Our pasta this time around is a very fine Bambu yarn and the sauce is 18/2 Merino with two colour options to choose from. The supplementary warp threads are interspersed within our ground warp in 5 stripes. As always you’ll be given a gazillion things to play with and explore. In the end we have the option of taking this fabric to the sink to give it a heavy fulling and create yet another layer…this time collapsing it.
This is the final sample from this Season and I’m sure you will not be disappointed.
Things we will learn:
-how to overlay the idea of collapse weave on supplementary warps
-how to thread supplementary warps a new way
-how to weave with fine bambu at a very open sett
-how to introduce the idea of supplementary weft
-how to create 2 completely different sides on a 4 shaft fabric
