One of my goals this year is to reduce my inventory of handspun yarns. Really, my super stash exceeds its dedicated cupboard space. And I’m not sure buying more shelving is the way to go.
Luckily, my need to reduce stash coincided with a small group challenge to weave something in Diversified Plain weave. I chose two plump skeins of handspun that went well together and were of approximately the same grist.
For the fat warp I chose a springy skein of brown Australian Moorit wool. The fat weft is a variegated skein of Superwash merino/bamboo blend in brown with blue tones. I paired these with thin warp and weft of bambu 12 in ebony and sweet corn.
I found the draft on the “Fibres of Being” blogspot. I adapted it to show squares of Diversified pain weave contained by frame of plain weave in the bambu. The result is subtle circles in low colour contrast, with great texture.
