Phase One. Off the loom, 45″x20yards (115cmX18m) of woven natural slub linen. Phase Two. Soak the cloth in some home crafted soy milk. Phase Three. Let the bonded cloth age. Phase Four. Cut into two personal wraps or throws. Final Phase. Finish one with sumi ink and other with red clay pigment.
I am dressing the loom for the next set of linen throws. As I winded the linen around the warp beam, I stretch the linen to keep as much tension on the threads as I am weaving. This process happen about a dozen times to warp 21 yards of yarn.
Dressing the Loom. I might not be doing it correctly but this is 45″x 21 yards of Hungarian Linen Warp. This will be for a new set of linen throws. What the picture doesn’t say is that 50% of the threads shown are stacked three deep per dent (space).
