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.
I live 20 minutes from small town in the South Island of NZ.
I'm a spinner,weaver,dyer. I sell finished pieces as well as yarns which support my fibre habit.I sell my fibre,yarns and fabrics at The Oamaru Textile Emporium in the historic precinct as well as take on private commissions.
