My first foray into ondulé weaving, inspired by the mountains of North Carolina in the summer. Ondulé uses a special fan reed to create “waves” in the cloth. Warp threads are successively forced into dense clusters and open spaces to break the usual parallel grid. Stripes in the warp exaggerate this undulation. Variegated yarn weaves in the spring green of new shoots with the rich green of summer leaves and the blue mist of sky and fog. Mountains on a summer morning.
Fiber: Silk alpaca blend
