Hand Woven Delights

The best thing about weaving is creating a cloth from nothing, watching your design come to life with that final thread. With hand weaving you truely get that satisfaction of a creator. Unlike jaquard weaving you are able to produce heavy textured fabric, and have no limit on the types of yarns that you can experiment with.

Here I have produced a doulbe cloth dobbie woven sample. I like how both sides are very different in look however the design is the identical.

This is one of my favourites designs. I love the yarn that I used in this sample as it gives the fabric so much texture. I also love how simple but effective the design is, I believe the fabric is extremely luxurious.
