I still had a bagful of yarns left over from my Wild Table Runner so I decided to do a little weaving with some odds and ends. It was a mixture of synthetic, wool and wool blends.
I used a black metallic acrylic yarn as the warp. It was a bit stretchy but I intended to felt it when finished so I wasn’t concerned.
Here it is still on the loom.
I went back and forth on what to use as the background. Finally I decided I wanted to keep the colors from getting lost and chose a white prefelt covered loosely with a white merino batt.
Here it is after felting. As you can see even the white merino is more beige than the white bamboo.
Its kind of wild, but fun. There is a lot of dimension since some of the warp and that crazy eyelash yarn are sticking up. Most everything else including the wide orange and purple synthetics felted in nicely.
