Another guild calendar sample. This sample was scanned and the colour is way off. The ribbon is approximately correct, but the ground cloth should be less yellow and more green. Hopefully I will be able to get a new camera soon! I am already finding it difficult to be without one.
Fantasy Weave with Silk Ribbon – Woven with 1/4″ silk ribbon supplementary warp and weft on a plain weave ground. This sample was adapted from a Malin Selander design by Cheryl Wiebe.
Warp Yarn Ground: 8/2 Orlon in warped randomly
Weft Yarn: same as warp
The following draft shows a different treadling order to the actual sample.
I just found a box of various sized ribbons at a garage sale – it was too tempting to not buy it and will be interesting to experiment with.
