October came in hot but with cooler mornings! I love weaving spinning and warping outside .I wound 4 warps in the month of september . a warp week for the month,
I use the Saori Kenzo table top system to make My own premade warps , I threaded one in my SAORI inside set and will store the others to thread later all beamed on in neat rolls!
my number 3 warp from september is in cool blues ,( first was in yellows last blog) cottons
it is fun and fast to wind warps when you have the right equipment .
My fourth and final warp from september is using my hand spun art yarns
I will weave this warp into a throw. by sewing two sections together. I have super large inserted eye heddles I replaced my heddles on the saori loom with to accomidate my art yarns.
I sprinkle mohair yarns in between my art yarns . It adds a nice halo to my throws. and weavings
you do not spin yarn? no worries i have textured wool yarns on cones here that weave up fast here wool yarns on cones
to weave with these bulky yarns and mohair I use a a bifurcated Swedish ski shuttles SKI SHUTTLES HERE
I also use the large saori boat shuttle with long ex large saori bobbins here Large boat shuttle here
peaceful warping and weaving in the redwood mountains
