Fresh From the Loom

A picture heavy post of the 6 metre Saori weaving fresh from the loom.

I'm very pleased with the way it turned out.

I haven't yet decided exactly what it will become.

Some sort of clothing I think.

Or perhaps accent pieces on several different articles of clothing and accessories?

This was woven primarily in fine mercerized cotton.

The travelling inlay was done with variegated "dish cloth cotton".

Wow.. it came out great. I Love the inlay with the clasped weft.

That's outstanding! What weight cotton did you use for the main part? I love the variations in the fabric, it must have been fun to weave.

Thanks Gene. I'm really happy with this weaving! I've got the fringe twisted and it's beenmaching washed and dried. It washed up beautifully! Nice hand to the fabric.

The main part, (the warp) is 5/2 mercerized cotton, Judy. I also used that same thread anywhere you see black in the weft. The coloured weft is a bit thinner. I used bold colours of 8/2 and 10/2 mercerized cotton for all of the clasped weft, and the thicker, wandering lines (traveling inlay) are a variegated dish cloth cotton, about "worsted weight".
