Off the loom!

I have recently cut down my two twill shawls from the loom. They are now fringe-twisted, washed and ironed – and ready to leave home.. 🙂

The first one is merino/silk yarn in both warp and weft. It is 170 cms long and 56 cms wide. Plus fringes, which are about 15 cms. Soft, shiny, with a nice heavy drape.
Number two has the same warp, obviously, but then I used handspun alpaca/silk in one of the club colourways, “July”, as weft yarn. It is variegated and adds lots of life to the shawl:

It is extremely soft and luxourious. Dimensions: 56 cm x 180 cms, plus the fringe.

The handspun shawl while it was still on the loom.

Both shawls are now in my webshop, together with lots and lots of fiber!

My loom is now standing naked, so I’m making plans for new weavings. With handspun.

  1. Hvor er de smukke! Pas nu på med en tom væv – det siges jo, at der går onde ånder i en tom væv! Hvis du engang har tid, kunne jeg godt tænke mig lidt detaljer om tæthed, kam og løbelængde.

    1. Tusind tak, Lone. Trenden er sat op med 8 tråde pr cm, to tråde i rør i en 40/10 kam. Søller på fire skafter i 2/2 kipper. Kipperen er vendt ved farveskift. Der er tre farver i trenden: grøn i den ene side, beige i midten og rosa i den anden side.
      Garnet er SilkBloom Extra Fino fra BC-garn.
      Så! Nu har du en hel væveseddel.. Så kan du godt gå i gang! 🙂
