THINGS TO REMEMBER

This might be the first handwoven project of many and it’s great to be able to refer back to your work and use that experience to help you create your next project. So remember to jot down notes about the kind of yarn you used, the dimensions of your fabric in the reed, off the loom, and after washing. Also consider making notes about how the fabric feels to you and what you might change for the next iteration of this project!

MAKE IT YOUR OWN

Your choice of colours for the warp and the weft will make all the difference! Play with handpainted, speckled, or variegated skeins. Make stripes in the warp. Make stripes in the weft. Use a gradient mini-skein set. See how the colours mix and blend!
