Inspired by Nature’s Four Seasons.

Just like Mother Nature’s Seasons, I have woven throw’s to match the seasons.

If you host a BNB, AirBNB, Bouquet Hotel or just hosting your own family. These throws will be a pleasure for your guest.
100% Nature Cotton from the USA, Handwoven on a Wooden Floor Loom in the Texas Hill Country.

This first set is design of “M’s and O’s”, version Forest Crook’s Blanket Weave. The approx. sizes & weight of the throws after wet finishing and medium heat in the dryer’ is 42″ x 72″.
Spring – 2 lbs
Summer – 1 3/4 lbs
Autumn – 2 1/2 lbs
Winter – 3 lbs

Starting to “Wet Finish” my Weaving’s

For those that want to know what that means, this is it.

Once the threads/yarns have been woven, they are still not considered cloth.
Wet finishing is a process of washing the newly made cloth so that the threads relax and “bloom”.

When I finish weaving a throw, I will cut it off the wooden loom.
Each piece is then hand-washed in hot water with a mild detergent. Then hand rinse and dried in the dryer.

Wet finishing is the final step in making a piece of cloth on a hand loom.
Wet finishing changes the texture and drape of the cloth. The cloth will also have a shrinkage from 10% t0 15%, depending on the pattern weave.

In the picture you can see an example
of what I mean.

In the picture on the left, the two on the bottom are a light and heavy weight throws, cut of the loom. The two above them have been wet finished.
On the right, they are wet finished, but it shows you how the pattern weave can change the texture.
