fireside coasters and table runner

Many people have found out accidentally that over-washing wool can cause it to shrink and full. For this project, Susan used the fulling property of wool to her advantage. She threaded and wove the wool warp and weft in colorful ombré stripes and then fulled the fabric in the washing machine until it was felt-like. That allowed her to cut shapes out of the fabric without it fraying. Twill tape on the back of the runner keeps its design in place. MATERIALS Type of Project Rigid Heddle STRUCTURE Plain weave. EQUIPMENT Rigid-heddle loom, 16" weaving width; 8-dent heddle; 2–6 stick shuttles.

making sense of weaving drafts & figures

Weaving patterns include a variety of charts and graphs to convey information in a graphic, concise manner. Weaving graphs are generally called drafts, and for rigid-heddle weaving, there are three main types: warp color order (sometimes called threading), weft order, and pick-up or pattern sequence (sometimes combined with weft order). The threading or warp color order portion of a draft provides the sequence for warping your yarns and is read right to left. Each row in the warp color order represents a different color. To save space, wherever a section of the draft is repeated, a bracket is placed above it with the number of times to do that section. For example, for the Gridlock Scarf by Benjamin Krudwig, start to thread with 4 ends of Plomo, then 4 ends of…
