Fabric No. 1

IMG_5395Just realised I hadn’t posted a final picture of the first fabric for 2017 – this has a beautiful, springy, bouncy feel and will look great in a snug waistcoast or jacket for the cooler months.

Fabric No. 2

IMG_5392Very happy with the second fabric length off the loom this year – I know it doesn’t sound much, but it’s part of my 2017 commitment to keep weaving while I’m studying fulltime¬†– and it’s working! The 1/3, 3/1 twill structure has given a length of fabric with 2 different faces which gives possibilities for matching cuffs or collar or even panels. I added a fine boucle yarn in areas in the warp, but in hindsight I should have just kept it with the straight wool, as the texture doesn’t show enough to be worth the problems it gave me.
