A weaving post! Finally..... and hopefully you'll find it was worth the wait. 😁
It all started with this 16 shaft point twill draft, which I believe was designed by Ingrid Boesel. I was playing around with the colour gradient feature of Fiberworks (for Mac) and knew I had the colours in my tencel stash. I have been enjoying working more with blues and teals this year and they are popular when it comes to sales.
The colours shown aren't quite like the yarns I actually used but close enough for my purposes. I used Web's 'Valley" 8/2 tencel in royal, greyed blue, dark teal and greyed teal in the warp. The weft yarns selected were navy and dark teal.
Winding the warp takes a bit of time as you go through the colour order one thread at a time, cutting off and retying on a new colour. I use little post it notes to isolate the 4-6 ends in play on the warping mill. I don't mind it really as I enjoy watching the colours evolve and blend on the mill. Eye candy!
Then it was wound onto the loom and you can see why I was enjoying the colour blending!
