Black and white tweed September 28, 2015 16:28

Rod has just started weaving this new design (for us) using black wool and white lambs wool so it will be really durable and very soft.  A friend sent us a photo of a coat with a design similar to this so we figured out how we could replicate it within the confines of our loom abilities. It was fun warping it up as we both had to concentrate on our counting because neither of us wanted to be blamed for any mistakes!! We are really pleased with the results.  If you have any patterns or colour combinations you would like us to try then please contact us and we'll give it a go.
