1st Double Weave

First Double Width Weave, 2/20 wool warp and weft, 4.5m long, 610mm in the reed, doubling to 1.2m in width. An experimental weave to see how double width weaving works.










These photos are after the loom was dressed and weaving begun.






















Below are photos of the process of setting the warp prior weaving. 



 below a short video of final moments towards end of the weaving and removal from the loom.


Laid out prior fulling.




 The finished weave.

Now to decide what to make with the material?






 These are heddels 500 of them Ray had orgainsed through a forum mate who is living in Canada to bring them back to Sydney then post them up to us a saving of almost $50 in postal charges, thanks Ian. The extra are required for my next double width weave using the full width of the loom.





 Below are the bobbins of colour I have to chose from for the warp and weft. What would you choose in the range???
