Through one thing and another, I have accumulated quite a lot of Rennie’s lambswool and have been playing about with it. I’d find it too scratchy in a scarf, but it is ideal for cushions and throws – at least in a single cloth. I tried out some double cloth a little while ago, but the yarn I have is the 2/11.3 Nm and really too chunky for the purpose. I need to get some of the 1/11.3 if I want the finished cloth to bend! However, the chunkiness does mean that it is pretty quick and easy to warp the loom, so I thought I would aim for somewhere between a single and a double cloth: yup, time for some woolly echoes. It may still be too chunky, but I won’t know for sure unless I try. It was a lovely day in the studio today and the sun poured in on this rather bright warp.
I wound both warp layers together but you can see from their appearance in the lease sticks that each one is a single colour plus charcoal grey.
I’ve only just started the threading. Much as I like my studio, I also like to snatch a little time outdoors when the sun when is shining! Yesterday I was waiting in for a courier and didn’t leave the building from 8:45 am until they finally showed up at ten past five, so I needed a double dose this afternoon.
