04 Mar Weaving | Crowdfund Orders
This month, we’ve started weaving our Crowdfund orders! It’s been a joy weaving a big batch of blankets for a wedding. We’ve popped a few images of our process below in the spring sunshine. We wove these last week in the break in the weather, which made the process a whole lot smoother and easier.
We currently have a large warping board in our garden studio, so this was the first time we’ve made a really long warp for bigger orders. Once we’d wound the warp, we carried it over to our weaving studio and put it on the loom (a job that takes more than one person!) The super soft yarn wove really well, and we’re so pleased with the results. We made a few tweaks to our initial design so that your products are even better. We’ve made the blankets a little bit denser, so they’re even warmer for those long Orkney nights! We have also made the stripe of colour slightly larger, so that the colour is more dominant. This will be the same in the scarves too.
We can’t wait for you to receive your Crowdfund Orders, which will be arriving with you in the next few months. Thank you so much for all your support!
Thanks again for reading our latest update in our Weavers Journal. We’ll be back next week with pictures of the new loom. To keep up to date, sign up to our mailing list here.
