Fiber to fabric

WL & JC's wraps off the loom

Going from the threads in my last post to fabric — it’s sort of magic, isn’t it?

This morning I cut WL & JC’s wraps off the loom. Here they are ready to be hemmed & wet finished. I’m ready to get right to it while I have good daylight, even if it is completely overcast. So much better than having to use just artificial light.

WL to JC

Here’s a shot of me switching from WL’s black silk to JC’s black cotton. I had only thought about the facts that they were the same color and would feel very different. I hadn’t considered how much different those two blacks would look on the loom. The silk is much finer than the cotton, and so the black cotton makes much more of an impact.
