Stainless steel as weft

I am currently working on quite a large project for Salt, which has a stainless steel weft at about 50 picks per inch. The warp is a mixture of fine and thick viscose and cotton, in shades of purple and beige.
The sample is finished, and the photos show the effect of daylight and sunshine through the fabric. The view is back towards the house, from the weaving shed.


  1. Wow, that is pretty! It's always nice to find another weaver's blog. Your work is really neat, I've never tried weaving with metal before.

  2. Thanks for your comments Christy! I can't take any credit for the design, just for the setting up and weaving-and that is arduous enough! The stainless steel yarn takes some getting used to-it isn't keen on selvedges and likes to kink and twist around itself and everything else-but it does look good when it behaves itself!
