My journey into the world of weaving

Placemats off the loom

Leave a comment

I wove four and the last was almost fiber juice it was so close to the heddles! And even so, I was short by about an inch. I know what I did. I used almost 4 inches in between the placemats with filler. I should have just woven some picks with heavy yarn as I have done in the past.

They are all 13.25 in width so at least I was consistent. The lengths range from 25.25 to 27.75.

I had 28 inches in loom waste, both front and back.

I am currently giving them a light wash and dry to see what the shrinkage is. Then I’ll know better for my next set. In many ways, this was my sample set – there are some errors.
