Lancashire Hill Breeds Woven Throws in Rupert Bear Check

The photographs show the progress in reverse order from winding the warps (all 3 of them) through beaming and threading to where I am now-weaving the first throw!

The three enormous chains of warp waiting to be wound onto the loom.

The wool is a thick double knitting weight wool from sheep from the Silverdale and Arnside areas of Lancashire, to be displayed (and hopefully sold!) by Kate Schofield at the Silverdale and Arnside Art and Craft Trail, to be held from 24-6th June 2011.
