Woven Shibori in the Bathroom

I have not posted for a while, but I have been weaving.

Here is my version of curtains in a bathroom! I threaded my loom to Bronson Lace and fiddled with the tie-up to get some long floats. Using 8/2 cotton warp and weft, sett 20 epi, 5/2 cotton resist threads.

I have dyed both sides and have to let it dry in the sun. I had a nice warm day last week for this.

I am taking out my resist threads. I will throw them away.

The resist threads are all removed. Here I am soaking my cloth in synthrapol to help remove the excess dye.

Drying on the back porch.

Ironing the pleats out.

Ta Da! Curtain for my bathroom window!
