Magical Materials to Weave
Blending Traditional and Innovative YarnsBook - 2012
This book is for weavers who want to learn innovative techniques that blend traditional and high-tech yarns on multi-shaft looms into unique material. Highly respected weaver Lotte Dalgaard worked for over ten years developing inventive hand-loomed fabric with attractive pleats, folds, frills, and crinkles. She worked closely with fashion designer Ann Schmidt, who took Dalgaard's pioneering fabrics and shaped them into garments--without cutting. The results are fascinating and set a whole new style of hand-woven fashion. Loom-formed textiles are exciting because the cloth becomes the protagonist, not simply a backdrop for the pattern-cutting design skills. Dalgaard now shares her secrets in this straightforward guidebook so all weavers can share in the pleasure and play with magical materials.
