My local Guild held an outdoor day today. Our last meeting before the Summer and holiday season. We were going to dye our woven Shibori. But it rained all day, so no dyeing done but we had a good time together. This is the first time that the weather was against us on our outdoor day.
I made a warp with 8/2 Tencel and used all 24 shafts on the Magic Dobby on a network draft.
On the left is how the woven warp came of the loom and on the right it shows how it looked after I drew the pattern weft yarn tight. For the pattern I used a polyester yarn that I bought at my local store, it's really a strong sewing thread. I was able to really pull hard, only once did the threads brake when pulling. I left it and hope that it will hold ok between the other threads. I'll find out after dyeing.
This warp is now soaking in the water and I will dye it tomorrow by myself with Procion.
It is the first time that I have woven a Shibori and I'm keen to see the result after dyeing.
