Paua

Off the loom after a period of non-activity. It was worth the wait however – light weight with beautiful drape, rich colours and gorgeous texture due to handspun weft. Just need to take it to the next level in time for festival exhibition entry. Juggled 4 shuttles using a combination of plain weave (fine alpaca/silk) and 1/3 twill for the handspun yarns (1 a 2-ply, the other Navajo plied) so very slow weaving, but well worth it.
