Here is an explicit, comprehensive and practical introduction to many types of loom weaving – from basic plain weave on the frame loom to twill, herringbone, buckaback and waffle waves on the four harness loom. In the first chapter, you will explore the basic terms and materials of weaving – sett, sheds, selvage, warp and weft. Chapters two and three describe various simple looms such as the frame, box and roller looms, and how to use them. Subsequent chapters discuss the color and texture of yarns; basic and advanced weave structures; floor and table looms; the designing, mending and finishing the cloth. Both students and teachers of weaving will certainly find this to be an indispensable handbook in which each informative chapter builds on the preceding one, laying a solid foundation for weaving. 205 pp.
