Oh, Dear

Well I've just looked at my last post and must apologise for the photography. I really don't think a black warp was a good idea to show you the way I warp my sectional warp beam, but it was what I was warping at the time! The warp is silk and cashmere and will be a couple of wraps, one for "Shades of Cashmere" and the other for me or to give away.

Shades of Cashmere is a mail order company which specialises in luxury yarns for machine knitters, but the yarns are really lovely and would serve hand weavers too. They can be found at:

Well, very interesting about the sectional warping. It's something I swore I'd never do, but one of these days I may take a serious look! :)

Oh, Leigh, I am so glad I took the plunge!

I can now do really long warps (for me) with ease and am weaving far more than I did.

I have to admit the Dobby Mechanism has made a difference, too. I no longer get bruised ribs, as I did when I had to climb under my old looms.
