I've been wanting to create a warp with Venne organic cotton for some time now. When I saw the new colors available, I could no longer resist! The colors call to mind spring-flowering perennials and include sherbet orange, magenta, cloud, the mysteriously-named Anemoon, green turquoise, raspberry, and apple. These are sprinkled with other Venne colors and a bit of Egyptian cotton, as well. To maximize the floral effect, I chose to weave this an 8-shaft crackle structure.

With a cottolin weft, the above wrap weighs approximately 291 grams/m^2. It has a textured feel, is nice and grippy with a good amount of cushioning. In a mid-length wrap, I think the cottolin or hemp/cotton wefts would shine. For a longer piece, a softer, more pliable yarn may be desired. Additional photographs of the completed wrap may be found here.
