Double Weave Fabric, Pearl Cotton, 2010

I was inspired to weave the patterned double weave fabric when I learned that you can design blocks that don’t have to have clear or sharp outlines.  To read more about how I wove this fabric and another double weave project, click here.  To view the vest that was made from this fabric click here.

Diamond Twill Scarf (with Color-and-Weave Effects), Pearl Cotton, 11" x 72", 2010

Complex Weavers Fine Threads Study (2010) - Shadow Weave

I’m a member of the Fine Threads Study Group at Complex Weavers.  My study for this year was Shadow Weave, and I designed this pattern with my weaving software using parallel threading and treadling to weave on my 16 shaft treadle loom.  I used 20/2 cotton sett at 36 e.p.i. and approximately the same p.p.i. to weave a finished fabric of 17″ x 90″ which was then cut into 37 swatches and exchanged with other members of my group.
