Six pounds of local fibre, spun, plied, measured and weighed.
Measuring the guide thread. We are doing 6 yards long and half as wide with 2 crosses. So it will be folded in half, either mirrored or side by side, and will end up the full width of 60″ and 3 yards long. We are working in Penny’s great studio, full of yarn, equipment and light.
Over, under, down, around and back up, the wonderful workhorse Leclerc warping mill.
All done, absolutely beautiful, all the natural colours and textures.
Just a few tie on knots! And a close up of the crosses, top and bottom.
Starting to chain it off.
The end result, a chained warp, ready for the loom.
Penny and Doreen warping the loom at the yurts. A very exciting day!
