Weaving Broken Twill
Normally there is no big deal with setting up the warp for the next weaving project but in this case the reed had been out of the loom for several months awaiting cleaning after more than usual wear on the wool and silk warp used for the last stole. Rust needed to be removed and so there would be no traces left in the next project - a natural coloured linen table runner and placemats set, I wove this stole. The warp was a white and maroon synthetic yarn which a friend had kindly given me when she finally let go of her weaving equipment. The weft was the last of the white wool yarn I bought from Carol Olde's mill when she was still in Taminda, the industrial area of Tamworth.
