Last month’s task – wearable cloth in any twill (a set of samples or whole yardage).
After all the experimenting (see previous post) I settled for a shawl, just nice large warm woollen shawl.
supersoft lambswool 11/2 bought from the Handweavers Studio , wove samples 8 and 6 threads per cm (the latter density felt right). The yarn is quite greasy and softens-fluffs-up considerably after washing.
pictures of the finished shawl are coming in the next post.
