Weaving Wool With Silk Fibers
Tomorrow night is the end of semester art show. I need a fiber arts project to put in, but haven't decided just how I'm going to use either of the things I've woven yet. I took the brown wool piece and prepared it for hanging this morning. One of these days I'll come up with the perfect idea for using it, but till then, this is how it looks:
Wool warp with mohair and silk weft
Looks like it has bangs!
This is a twill weave. The silk is from deconstructed silk garments from Japan.
