Tuesday 20th April

An update on the Glimakra Julia loom with the pictures of the first warp now mounted on the loom and about halfway completed.  This is a tencel/rayon hand dyed warp in shades of peacock green and jade and a hand dyed baby alpaca/silk yarn in laceweight, hand dyed in Malachite green.

The half completed scarf.  The threading is for a diamond twill pattern and is set at two threads per dent in a 12 dent reed, that is a 24 ends per inch.
The tie up is shafts 1 and 4, 3 and 4, 2 and 3 and 1 and 2.

Close up of the colour detail in the scarf.

More soon, in the meantime why not have a look at the newly listed items in my Etsy shop, link is on the right.
