To design this 16-shaft echo weave shawl, I interleaved two networked threadings. Purple and orange pearl cotton yarns alternate in the warp and the weft is a light green cashmere/silk/merino yarn. When woven, these three colors mix in different proportions to create a wider range of colors. There’s more info about this type of weave in my post, “Interleaved Echo Weave.”
This is a scarf I wove on 16 shafts using a variegated colored Tencel warp and a solid colored weft. I designed a networked draft so that the design looks like it may be a painted warp but it’s not!
The two table runners as shown above were woven on 8 shafts using the same networked threading and treadling with two different tie-ups. See my full post with drafts and notes about them here.
The four-color double weave sample shown above that I designed and wove on 12 shafts and 16 treadles is one of several samples I wove as I was learning about this amazing weave. I wrote about my experience with this weave in a post with photos of other samples and a draft at this link.
