This project features my second organic indigo-dyed warp. If you missed version 1, you can read about it here. For this one, I started with 10/2 Organic Upland bright white combed cotton. Like v.1, it was dyed in small organic indigo vats over several weeks - allowing the vat time to rest between sessions. The warp has a full range of blues and a lovely contrast with the bright white bits that were tied to resist the dye.
The warp was beamed at 28 ends per inch and threaded to produce the structure below, an 8-shaft crackle weave. I developed this pattern by making some tweaks to the draft I used for Escapade. To give a sense of the scale for the pattern, the width of one diamond shape is equivalent to 2" on the loom.
The 46-yard warp yielded 6 pieces with 5 wefts in various fibers. Below are photos of all the pieces in progress and finished.
There was just enough left over to sew some pillows!
