Hand Spun and Woven

Top 2 Weft, bottom 2 are warp yarns
Dyer & Phillips loom
In the previous post is the fibre which I dyed. I then hand spun the fibres and plied them to produce a two ply yarn, using my Sickenger wheel.

I set up the weave on my Two shaft Dyer & Phillips PL loom. This loom is one I was given by Joan Fisher who had purchased it through Anthony Hordons after the war.

Its a plain loose weave similar to the previous scarf. The warp is wool, wool and Mohair, silk and linen. Colours were requested by the gent the scarf is for.
