As I’ve mentioned before, the LDWS Guild was given a large amount of wool yarn, to be made into blankets.  There was enough yarn to make three warps of three blankets each.  I’ve finished weaving the first warp into three blue-toned blankets.  The second warp is  brown and orange-toned with blue accents.  Now that the warp is done, I will soon be loading it onto my loom, with pictures to come!

Creating the warp on my Leclerc Warping Mill.  Here is the cross, which helps to keep the strands of yarn in the correct order.  Since the warp is 50 inches wide, and the strands are spaced at 8 per inch, there are a total of 400 strands of yarn in this warp.  I divided it into two so that it is easier to load on to the loom.

These blankets will be a combination of various soft shades of orange and brown, with accents of red and bright orange and blue.
