Wool Wrap as a Teaching Project

A friend in my neighborhood was keen to try her hand at weaving and I was keen to try my hand at teaching. Perfect!

The picture above shows the loom set up for her to start her project, a wrap or scarf.

It was made with a lovely soft mohair wool blend doubled as weft and Bendigo three ply as warp. As I like to do for low stress weaving, I threaded dark grey on shafts 1 and 3 and java on shafts 2 and 4. The sett was 10 dpi.

We only had two 50g balls of weft yarn and when it ran out, that was the end of the project.

My friend is thrilled with what she achieved, as she should be.

My friend almost always wears black

Not bad, is it?
