Weaver Notes

Woven on rigid heddle loom, with pickup stick used as third shaft. I was exploring textures available on a rigid heddle loom and tried to develop a threading and treading to get a Bumberet texture. This turned out to be almost impossible because Bumberet depends on sequences of 3s. Only some of the color stripes show the typical Bumberet design. However, I’m pleased with the texture which will be absorbent.
