For St Patrick's Day, I decided to wind a couple of warps for my loom. The warp is the part of the fabric that runs the lengthwise grain - you know, in quilting it is the direction with the least stretch - or almost NO stretch. In Weaving the warp is the background to the piece but can really add color and sparkle. I call this one Leprechaun's Treasures as it it green (clover) and gold (end of the rainbow.)
Look at the texture and color pop it adds.
I did some other textured yarns and some patterning in the weaving.
|Fun little color "bubbles"|
|No that is not a shadow in the top section, I used two colors.|
I also made another warp that will be used later - but I have six meter of this one to weave yet.
Here is the other warp. I confess it is more "my" colors.
The teal or peacock blue really makes me smile. Of course these colors would also work wonderfully for a quilt.
At this moment I have more wool fiber absorbing the dye. Once it is dry it will be spun into yarn for even more fun with fiber arts.
