gathered my Art yarns that I had spun from my stash
I sprinkled in some commerical mohair in the warp as well
the bulky yarns filled up my warping frame with a tempting colorful warp.
the wound warp is off the saori warping frame and into a canvas tote till I beam it on to my saori ch60 loom.
yes my bulky art yarns are in the warp! I replaced the wire heddles from my saori harnesses to jumbo inserted eye heddles I special ordered from Canada . This will be a throw for a wedding gift for our son .
I used my Glimakra raddle directly on the loom to help tame such a buky warp as I beamed on my CH60 loom which was easy because the warp beam on the ch60 loom is up high .My back was happy about that!
I started weaving the weft. using my hand spun art yarn and some mohair too.

sewing a straight stitch on the sewing machine then cutting the weaving into 3rds.
