Weaver Notes

Hems are in plain weave using quilting weight sewing thread—weave 1/2″, insert thicker white yarn, another 1/2″ and another thicker yarn, and the last 1/2″. That gives a crisp fold line (after pulling out the thicker threads) for your hems.

Cotton bouclé (teal) in warp is a bear to wind on—lots of patience needed! You will need floating selvages. This can easily be converted to 2 or 4 shafts.

Colors were inspired after seeing a picture of a colorful snake:
