Weaving SAORI style

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

Mung Bean Green Yardage

I love all shades of green and one day when Winn was sorting the mung beans I noticed all the different shades of green in the beans. So I took a sample of the beans for reference and ended up dyeing 11 different shades of green. The fiber is a hand-spun cotton from Zoila of Tumianuma in Ecuador. This is also the widest fabric I have ever made. It was 30" wide on the loom and 5 yards long. The pictures show the progress from undyed to finished yardage:
