Also, here are some new superfine Tasmanian merino scarves wot I have just finsihed for an order. One more to go so I had better start warping !!!
|Three Superfine Merino handwoven Scarves|
|Closeup of one on right|
These scarves were all woven on my little Ashford Knitters Loom with a 12.5 dpi heddle and the gorgeous 19.5 micron superfine merino fibre.
The left one is using our own handspun in an open weave which was then fulled in the washing machine to a firm fabric.
The middle one is mill-spun superfine warp with the weaving a window pane pattern variation using alternating millspun and handspun.
The right hand one is all mill-spun and there's a closeup of the balanced weave at right. The one that I have still to do will be a leno using the superfine handspun.
My new (secondhand) 80 cm Ashford Rigid Heddle Loom !!!!!
Thanks to Belinda in the ACT for packing it up so beautifully and sending over for me!!
PS Thanks for the kind wishes y'all - I'm still sick :(
