At the local wool gathering last Sept. I bought some color grown cotton yarn, color dune, in a small boucle. When I got it home I could not imagine how to use it. I have now used it as a brocade or inlay yarn on a natural cotton flake ground and I am thrilled with the result.
And this is before I washed it, So now the ground is a little tighter and the inlay yarn is held snug. Yes those are leno bands. I have two more panels to weave on the RH for this project.
