Weaving Draft: Birdseye

Traditional Bird’s Eye Weaving Draft can be woven on a four shaft loom.

Last Updated on

Bird’s Eye drafts are one of my favourite types of drafts. There are several variations of threading and treadling that you can choose from. Bird’s Eye can be woven with very fine cotton and linen yarns for placemats or tablecloths or thicker wool for cozy blankets.

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
