Off the Loom

Finally finished weaving my cotton washcloths. All done in twill variations, these washcloths are so soft and yet very sturdy. This is the second set I've made. Not sure what my next project will be, but I'm thinking placemats.

At the moment, I'm threading my new tapestry loom. I've done some small pieces on the Harrisville lap loom, but the new loom is bigger and allows you to raise and lower the shed with threaded heddles. A bit complicated, but I'm close to being ready to weave.

Keep checking my Etsy shop for lots of hand-dyed wool.

Oh, they are so simple and lovely - I'm not sure if I could bear to use them, I think I'd just have them displayed!

They really wash up great and a quite soft.
