Handwoven Colour

Felicia Lo · February 26, 2021

The focus of this ongoing series will be on working with colour and incorporating handpainted and hand-dyed yarns into our handwoven projects. Specifically, we’ll look at working with semi-solid hand-dyed yarns, handpainted yarns, and splashy or speckled variegated yarns. We’ll also look at variations of sett, warp-faced, and weft-faced fabrics. With each episode, we’ll make handwoven projects each step of the way, including a gradient scarf from a sock blank!
