This last month has been dedicated almost exclusively to weaving throws. We’ve done a long warp of Large Check Throws and another warp of Multi-Coloured Throws. The first two colour ways are available in our online shop now. There are more colours coming, hopefully before Christmas, but otherwise definitely in time for warming up in the new year.
Here are some warping and weaving preparation pictures and a video featuring Roger beaming off.
Warp threads ready for beaming off, i.e. transferring from big wheel to small beam. Watch the short video below to see how exhausting that is! Wearing a thin T-shirt was fine for this job, even though the temperatures would have called for a down jacket.
