Season 4 Episode 9 - Weft Faced Twills
It’s time for our last sample of the year and this time I overlay all the twill theory that we’ve been studying throughout the year on an open linen warp with wool weft, to create amazing weft-faced fabric.
As always there is so much to learn, so many ways to play at the loom, so many ways to lose yourself in creativity. I got carried away sampling and wound up weaving several yards on a straight draw threading. I superimposed 40 different Colour & Weave sequences on top of different treadling sequences and had a blast. Then I adjusted the tie-up to get Krokbragd and wove another bunch of Colour & Weave sequences on top of that tie-up with different treadlings.
Finally, I re-threaded several times focusing on graphic and composition. Again…..asking the question “what if” over and over and over.
So much fun, so much to do. Have I mentioned how much I love weaving 🙂
