2-Heddle Weaving with Peggy



You will be threading 2 heddles of the same dent to weave a lighter-weight piece. This will double the density of the fabric (that is, 15 Ends Per Inch instead of 7.5 or 20 Ends Per Inch instead of 10). You will make lavender sachets with your weaving: nice for gift giving or your own use. The weave structure is 3-Shaft Rosepath (a twill). You will use an indirect warping method.

Skill Level:
intermediate
Skill Details:
Advanced Beginner/Intermediate.
Materials Included:
Lavender sachet inserts. No additional fee.
Requirements:
10-inch or larger Rigid Heddle Loom with 2 heddles of the same dent (that is, two 7.5-dent heddles, or two 10-dent heddles.) Sleying (threading) hook, the usual tools (scissors, yarn needle, measure, etc.) You will need a loom and yarn for this course. Looms may be rented from HOKC for $25 per week and the rentals must be arranged in advance as supplies are limited. Yarn: three or four different colors, about 200 yards of each. Solid, lighter colors will work better than variegated or dark yarns. Any fiber content, but fairly smooth yarns in DK-weight for the 7.5-dent heddles or 5/2-weight for 10-dent heddles.
