Red Plaited Twill

Red Weft

We are working on a six-tea-towel warp and this is the fifth one to be woven. We’re using red wefts this time…

…only one more tea towel left to weave until we can get them all off the warp for a side by side comparison.

  1. Constance you are a constant…in our lives. Love the gorgeous weaving, the wonderful colors, the great photos and of course…Constance overseeing all the work. Thank you!!

    • We think so too – one of our favourite things to do is weave tea towels…we have a plan to make some linen ones next on our friend’s loom and something a bit more complicated on mine!

  2. Great photos, and well done on the weaving. Endless fascination of the colour and pattern combos. Long ago I watched a diamond twill being woven on a warp weighted loom and remember that we had to keep absolutely silent through the warping process. I love the pic with Constance peeking through the shed 🙂
