Warping Up

The cotton warp ends of the crinkle scarves, shown being wound onto one of the back beams, and dappled in sunlight on a very cold morning. The wool ends have been wound and beamed separately. This is a 16 shaft design in which blocks of wool in plain weave alternate with blocks of fine cotton in 2/2 twill. In finishing, the wool will shrink and pull the twill cotton areas and the area of both fibres into relief, creating interesting three-dimensional shapes. I hope!

New Ventures

I have now set up my mini site at Made By Hands of Britain (see Links) where a small selection of my current collection of scarves may be found, and where I intend to add some table linens for sale in the spring.
