Mirror Warp Throw

Mirror Warp Throw **NEW**
Mirror warping and overdyeing is a great way to use up leftover yarns to weave a scarf or a throw.

For this throw project, you can search through your yarn stash for all your odd colours of yarns, that you don't know what to do with. Try to use yarns of similar weights and fibre types. Such as all wools, or cottons. The colours don't have to be co-ordinated, because you will be overdyeing them, so colour clashes are great for this project.
Mirror Warp Throw

Mirror Warp

When doing a mirror warp, your warp should be twice as long and half as wide as a normal warp and you will need to put a Cross at BOTH ENDS of the warp. When threading the warp to the loom, you will fold the warp in half and thread both ends of the warp onto the loom, creating a mirror image of the warp.
