Texture and Colour in Weaving
A rigid heddle loom is a very simple piece of equipment - but there are endless opportunities for mixing colours and types of yarn, and there are numerous ways to experiment with texture and fancy 'stitches'. By combining finger techniques such as sumac, leno, traditional tapestry weaving techniques and even embroidery stitches, which are all worked as the fabric is woven, no two pieces are ever the same.
An 8-shaft loom gives thousands more options for weaving textures, allowing 3D depth and endless complexity.
