A sweet short warp to use up some of my smaller bits of linen thread. Enough for one towel and one scarf. The colours are mirrored from the centre, with Fibonacci sequencing. The warp is mixed linens, some Euroflax, some 2/16 and the green is a fine singles. All of the warp, as far as I can tell is line linen. Simple, straight draw threading.
One towel with a fine singles tow linen as weft. A little thick and thin in places as tow linen is. Simple, calming plain weave. Soft and absorbent tea towel.
One scarf with silk weft. Straight draw 2/2 twill. A few random linen stripes along the way. It has the softness, luster, and drape of the silk, and a little of the crunchiness of the linen. Rustically beautiful.
Easy, relaxing weaving for a slow summer’s day.
