Advancing Twill Weave

Advancing twill scarves woven in 30/2 silk warp.

Last Updated on

This is what I am currently working on. This scarf is 30/2 silk warp with purple silk/ramie blend weft. I designed this advancing twill by starting with a draft for the Ingrid Boesel workshop I took a few weeks ago and playing with reversals etc in Fiberworks PCW. I am quite happy with the draft and with how it is looking. It does take some concentration to weave though, so is slow going. I have enough warp for 2 scarves and am considering weaving the second one in natural silk/cashmere, if I can get comfortable with this treadling.

I've had an interest in weaving, looms, yarns and textiles since I was a small child. I learned to knit, crochet, sew, do needlepoint at my mother's knee. My grandmother was a Saami from northern Norway. I am very interested in studying more about tradtional Saami and Finnish style weaving and handicrafts. Paivi Suomi
