Tweed fabric samples

 This sample is sett at 16 ends per 2.5cms and I think it could even benefit from being set at 20ends. The yarns are hand dyed and handspun yarns woven in a broken herringbone twill.
 I tried a few different coloured wefts. I like how the tweediness of the yarns is apparent in this fabric.
I also did some natural dyeing today. Visit my other blog for the results.
One day I will make a tweed fabric/yarns from scratch using natural dyes instead of the acid dyes, need to get the colours really saturated first.
