Craft > Continuous Strand Weaving
The warping and weaving are done simultaneously with one strand from a center-pull ball of yarn.
All types of yarns can be used including handspun yarns, feather yarns, fuzzy ones, beaded yarns, ribbons, chenille yarn. All will automatically balance in both warp and weft. Your entire piece is in full view as you weave.
A Touch of Heaven (at left) was woven with handspun Finn and Wensleydale wool, mohair, huacaya alpaca and angora. The shawl was trimmed with tailspun champion suri alpaca.
With this amazingly simple concept, the variety of truly unique items is limited only by your imagination.
Create shawls, scarves, capes, shrugs, baby blankets, afghans and even wall hangings. Triangle shaped shawls drape more beautifully and remain on the shoulders better than rectangular ones. Several triangles can be sewn together to form larger pieces for table coverings or bed throws.
