Weaving SAORI style

A beginner's weaving experience with the SAORI weaving loom.

Weaving Wool Seat Cushions

When we moved into this little apartment in downtown Cuenca, it was partially furnished with 5 small wooden chairs and a small table which is the right height for a loom bench. I decided to weave some wool for seat cushions. I bought raw wool from the Rotary Market which I used for the weft. The warp was a blend of alpaca and synthetic fiber in a bright lime green color. I also used some burgundy cotton in the warp to provide some interesting contrasting lines in the all white wool background.

The fabric is done now and Rommie is showing me how to cover the cushions....pictures to come....
