For this runner, I wanted to try something new. I threaded a beautiful antique overshot pattern onto the loom, and began weaving using alpaca, cotton, and some yellow rayon thread for a little golden shine. The pattern was really gratifying to weave - the combination of textures was just wonderful.
When I had finished weaving and tying off, I decided to give the runner a bath in this gorgeous wool soap from Twig & Horn. It smells faintly of rosewood, and was a pleasure to use in the sink. It really fluffed out the alpaca fibers and brought everything together beautifully.
Thank you for peeking behind the scenes with me! The process of weaving is one that I love sharing.
Woven Runner No. 2 is available in the shop.
