My journey into the world of weaving


Leave a comment

I have dressed the loom with handspun again. The warp is the same as the last scarf; the weft is another handspun. I think it’s a corriedale. I am weaving a 2/2 twill. I have woven an inch and need to make decisions about the width of the border. I have been thinking about this; I just haven’t acted! It will have to wait until I get back from Maine this weekend!

I am spinning some white alpaca which I purchased last fall from the Parker River Alpaca Farm. I think the fleece was Harley. My sister and I split the fleece so I think I have over a pound of the fiber. It is spinning beautifully! No problems at all. I am finishing one bobbin, on to the next, and then I look forward to plying them together! Again this will have to wait until I am returned.
