I have been asked by a friend who is presenting a guild program next week on S&W and taquete to critique her comments on Taquete. She has made 4 comments on Taquete (to follow) and I am hoping the group will help me out with their comments on hers.
1. Taquete is the international name for Summer and Winter woven on opposites without the tabby thread.
2. What would have been woven as tabby in Summer/Winter now becomes a pattern shot in Taquete.
3. Restated, what would have been the tie-down ends become the "binding" pattern ends (usually of similar ply or thickness as weft) in Taquete.
4. Taquete compresses and covers the little "dits" that are created by shafts "1" and "2" as the tie-downs in Summer/Winter.
Many thanks for your help
