Hello Taquete Experts,
I am setting up , y drawloom to learn taquete. I know most weavers use standard looms for this now, but I will be basing most of my taquete on historical examples, which are believed to have been woven on a drawloom. Plus, these designs require more shafts than I have on any other loom.
In preparing my initial warp, I have read the section on Taquete in Tabby to Taquete and Pattern and Loom. These books discuss different binding mehtods. Hoskins uses A1, A2, B1, and B2, each being shaft 1 or 2 plus all the pattern shafts for "block" A or B. Whereas Becker says taquete is woven using a binding warp and main/pattern warp, where the binding warp are the only warp threads used in the tabby treadling.
I plan to samole both methods, but would be interested in hearing thoughts of other weavers.
