Red warp coat

Back in 2013 I had a “window of time” and dressed the big loom with a red warp – 8-Mar-2013. The window proved narrow and the warp languished…

… for 6 and a half years.

Finally this September I finished weaving every last centimetre I could get from it. Beautiful luscious fuzziness.

And this week I finished sewing it into a coat. Very nearly every centimetre of fabric. Now a shorter and less patient pause while I wait for the right weather.

    Absolutely stunning as a weaving–and pure genius as a coat! Very well done

      Thanks Michelle. The coat is an arrangement of strips of material, based on a diagram in a Saori book. No shaping or waste, which is wonderful when it’s one’s precious handwoven.
