While playing with Baby, my new loom, I need to get something on one of the other looms. So I am winding warp for some Fustain cloth. According to my notes, this type of cloth was made with cotton and linen. It was a thick twilled fabric with a short nap. I will put on cotton for the warp and use line for the weft. It will take me a while, I want a wide warp.
I have woven this before, at a class I took at John C Campbell Folk School. A couple of wonderful people, Barbara Miller and Pam Howard conducted the class. Wonderful memories and a big jump on my weaving knowledge.
This is my washed and unwashed samples.
