How Wide Can I Weave?
'Spook of the Loom' is a Halloweave group open to weavers who wish to confront any weaving demon. You can join 'Group Spook', dare your demon...and lay your weaving ghosts to rest!
My Dare is to weave wider! (I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to throwing a shuttle through the weaving shed, I keep thinking I'll break the warp threads.) So far the widest fabric I have woven on my floor loom is a measley 45cm wide.
I'm going to warp my loom with an 80cm wide wool warp, and weave black and grey (colour & weave) samples in double Huck weave structures. I've already completed a similar study in single Huck.
My loom is currently standing idle, so I've started winding the warp already...I'll post some photos tomorrow. If you need to finish weaving an old project off your loom before you join in Halloweave, there's still plenty of time to prepare!
