A few months ago, I sent a little care package to Denise over at Schacht, maker of our Cricket rigid heddle loom. It contained several different yarns, all completely different in composition and construction: Infusion Handpaints, Cotton Gold, Poems Silk Solids, and Bamboo Bloom Handpaints.
The challenge for Denise was to take all these vastly different yarns and weave them up into something awesome. I didn’t make it easy for her, but I at least softened the blow by including coordinating shades in each different yarn. Well let me tell you, Denise passed this challenge with flying colors (so to speak, at least in greys and blues!).
Check out the Schacht newsletter for details on the finished project and a great how-to for repairing a float, or skipped warp thread.
