Crackle Weave

Crackle or Jämtlandsväv is similar to overshot and summer and winter weaves. Weft threads pass over 3 warp threads and are bound down by the 4th warp thread. On a 4 shaft loom, 4 pattern blocks are possible. The transition from one block to the next requires an incidental thread that is a repeat of the first thread of the block.
I designed this crackle weave fabric with a lightweight summer jacket in mind. I like the soft, natural colors that Foxfiber cotton yarns provide.

Warp

10/2 Foxfiber cotton, 4200 ypp
colors: Buffalo – B100, B50, B25
Green – G100, G50, G25
Coyote – C100, C50, C25

Each crackle design block was threaded using alternate color blocks of green and brown with a random selection of the various shades of Foxfiber colors. This added an interesting depth of color to the pattern blocks.

Sett: 24 e.p.i
Loom Width: 38″, Finished width: 32″
No. Ends: 912
Warp Length: 4 yards

Weft

Pattern weft: 18/2 Foxfiber cotton, 7560 ypp, Green – G25
Tabby weft: 60/1 Bourette Silk

Using the fine silk yarn as the tabby shot, gave the fabric a very soft, luxurious handle.
