What we are weaving
A few years ago our weaver in residence was Fiona Daly and we are currently weaving the blankets that she created for us.
As handweave is different to weaving using Alvin, our new loom, we have had to adapt the pattern a little but we have kept to the same colour palette and we started weaving the blankets on Wednesday.
There are two patterns and colourways in the series that we are doing. And this is definitely the longest warp we put on so far. It takes a long time to warp up the loom; definitely the longest part of each job. We expect to have the twelve blankets finished in two weeks and they will go on sale online shortly afterwards. How exciting!
