I have only a rigid heddle loom, so I am constantly on the lookout for interesting drafts created for rigid heddle looms. I like to weave table linens and perhaps will some day weave some yardage for garments. After all, many fabrics in other parts of the world are only 22-24 inches wide. That is doable on my loom. I have worked with cotton, cotton/linen, wool, and cotton/wool yarns. My other weaving passion is making baby blankets. I have made them primarily from wool/nylon sock yarn because they are light weight, warm and washable -- very practical for a baby blanket. I am glad Gist Yarn & Fiber does not stock a gozillion yarns from all over the world. After all, the United States has many fiber producers and a great past in producing yarn and cloth. I am glad to see fiber production and cloth making being revived in our nation. I will and occasionally do purchase yarns produced in other countries, particularly from countries in which I have lived -- Spain and Turkey. I like your podcast, at least most of the episodes.
I should have written that the wine coloured linen seems too weak for warp!
I'm currently weaving this as a dish towel (with a few modifications). I love using cottolin. It lasts forever and washes and fries beautifully. Next up the citrus towels! GIST is my go to place. Thanks ladies! Katy
I have not woven these towels yet so I can't give a review but if it is anything like other patterns I have bought from GIST I'm sure it will be great. Thanks
