One Warp Different Outcomes

One long warp means many different decisions.  Begin with some lovely natural cotlin add some shots of dark red tencel...weave for awhile.

Continue with the natural cotlin but this time use navy blue tencel...weave for awhile.

We are starting to get somewhere, several yards down the warp we use some gold metallic and cotton ...weave for awhile.

Change it up...find brown fine merino wool in stash...weave for awhile.

Even farther down the road...treadling something new...weave for awhile.

The end of the warp is in sight...soldier blue cotton...weave for awhile...done.

One warp many different outcomes.

  3. I do that as well. Almost done with one towel, need idea for next one.

  4. I am looking forward to doing that very same thing with a warp that will be dish towels for another neice's bridal shower. One warp, many variations---it is so much fun! And your towels are so lovely.
