Weaving – Transparency Ornament: aa122498

As part of our recent ornament exchange, I made these ornaments using hemp as warp and background weft. My original star design uses 4/4 Foxfiber Green cotton.

This was my first attempt at doing a transparency weaving. I used the end of a hemp warp that I had used for towels. I resleyed the warp at 10 epi, leaving a 1 inch space between each ornament. As I was doing several ornaments at one time across the width of the loom, I was unable to use the beater to beat each row in place. Instead, I used a tapestry beater to place the weft.I would recommend doing each ornament individually on a narrow warp, (i.e. 32 ends) as using the reed and beater would give a more consistent and even beat.
