The left over

Remember to extended tabby with the massive breakage of the warp treads?

What did I do with the left over warp?
I changed it from a tabby to a 4-shaft twill and I changed the tread count from 8 tr/cm to 9 tr/cm.
Twill is not as hard on the warp as tabby is.

I used a dark grey wool as weft.

The last bit I changed to white.

I wasn’t to happy with the colour is I dyed it with some indigo.

Now I just have to decide what to make out of the 6meters.

Suggestions??

Off to the Netherlands

The weave is out from the loom.
I’ve been sewing in broken warp treads.

The selvages are something I don’t give a s**t about during weaving. As long as they don’t break… I had two treads of worsted yarn in the edge to prevent breakage. They worked fine but I decided to work with a temple.

I wanted to shrink the fabric to get it more compact look. The last time I shrunk a fabric of this style I did it in washing machine, 40 degrees. That one became lovely. But I didn’t want to risk that this fabric would shrink to much. So I started with 30 degrees and the fabric came out right like I wanted it.

Here you can see the result of the extra spinning I added, fake twill lines.

To weave a small test.

I will weave some fabric for my husbands uniform. It will be the lining if the uniform that he is going to wear at Waterloo 2015.
Here is the setup of the small weave.
I’ve used a plastic lid with treads rapped around it. The Pfiffikus help me to keep the right amount of treads per cm. The warp is 6/1 wool.

I tried with different thickness on the weft. First it’s Fårögarn 6/1 and Spelsau 4/1.

The original fabric is a little bit fluffy on one side so I brushed my piece to get the same surface. Using a nail brush.

After

Then I washed the piece in warm water. Using normal hand soap as detergent. Why? Because it was on the sink and I just grabbed the first thing I spotted. ;)

Above pictures is showing both sides.
How did it turn out compare to the original?
I need to get a yarn right in between of the two thicknesses I had. I might mix these two with some hand spun to get the right mix of thickness in the weft as the original have got.
Stay tuned, in a month or two I can show you the progress.

Testing the tabby/ extended tabby

A new weave is in the loom. Not really new it’s the same setup as the fabric that ended up as a bolster roll. But this time it’s gonna be a fabric for a friend. Keep your fingers crossed that the warp will hold.
To avoid breakage of the treads I’ve spun the yarn. Not all by myself. I’m not that skilled of a spinner yet, but I have run all the yarn, intended to be in the warp, trough my spinning wheel. That means the tread have got over spun and that will make it much stronger.
This is the first test.
