Weaving SAORI style

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

My 100th Warp & All My Heddles

I decided for my 100th weaving project that I would use the smallest thread I have ever used and I would use all 720 heddles on my 36 inch Leclerc loom for the first time. For the warp I used undyed 8/2 cotton which is typically used for dish towels.  For the weft I dyed several shades of blue green that look like seaweed colors to me. The resulting Seaweed Shawl had double warp threads (720) which I found out muted the dyed weft threads.  So for my next project with the dyed threads, I used only 360 warp threads which allowed the dyed weft threads to be more brilliant.
