Weaver Notes

This was from a warp that I put on to make thank you towels for my neighbor. She picked colors outside of my comfort zone, so my brief was to make towels that I liked out of colors that weren’t my favorite. I was pleased with this warm and rustic interpretation of the colors. Warp is 402 ends including fs with natural, dark brown and gold elements. Weft for the piece is a warm yellow-gold and a lighter, whiskey colored brown. Hems are 20/2 cotton in rust, and are machine hemmed. I used all 8 shafts, threaded straight draw because I wasn’t sure what treadling I would use, but for this one, I just used a 2/2 twill to let the plaid take center stage.
