Plaited Twill

February 26, 2011

Silk noil fleck weft on a mercerized cotton warp.  5 1/2 metres ong, 35cm wide.  Woven 2003.

Threading derived from a 4 shaft name draft (my name) converted in a weaving program using a double-two-tie system.

    Pretty! Subtle!

    How was the threading derived from a name draft? Did you use it to determine block size or something?

      I began by making a name draft using the weaving program – it creates a 4shaft overshot type. I then did a block substitution with a double -two-tie as the choice and this is what it created!

      I like the plain colour – the silk is sort of creamy grey with little dark slubs. Room for embellishment with the plain cloth.

    I really like the combination of yarns that you chose! The silk, with its shimmer and sheen just makes the fabric sing. Nice choice!

    Oh, and I forgot to mention, you were right about the snow. We’ve had at least a foot of fresh powder, so the skiing can continue 🙂 Not that I’m hooked to it or anything….
