Width on Loom:
Extant Textile Inspiration:
Akhim green taquete
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.
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!
