For the class, we each brought our own loom to the Folk Art Center, warped with doubled carpet warp at 6 working epi in a rosepath threading. We used either rug wool or mop cotton yarns for the weft in a variety of treadling sequences. I ended up with a sample piece that is about 70 inches long and thick and sturdy enough for a rug using rug wool as weft. The weft yarns were mill ends from R & M Yarns in Tennessee and some beautiful wool yarns picked up during my recent trip to New Mexico at Tapetes de Lana.
Exercise 1, shown in the top photo in cream and camel, is a two color treadling woven on opposites.
Exercise 3, with 4 colors, resulting in a flame stctch look.
