Taquete Sample 1

Submitted by Jahanara on Sat, 07/31/2021 - 07:50

These are my first taquete samples. These samples were woven on my drawloom as part of an experiment to see how weaving taquete would work on a drawloom. There is much debate as to whether there sumptous fabrics were woven on the drawloom or using heddle rods.

Linen Blanket

Width:  32inches
Length:  36
Notes: 
This was woven in 2010 for Baroness Suibhan's first daughter. They have gotten much use of it. :)

This blanket is linen woven in twill, though now I know that nearly all linen finds from the Middle Ages were woven in plain weave.

These are the first samples I have produced on my drawloom. It took me ages to get my drawloom set up, but now that it is ready to go I'm cruising along and having a lot of fun! Here are my samples so far. I will come back and write more about each one soon!
