Best of Handwoven: Projects in Waffle Weave
Waffle weave is an unusual weave structure in that its name evokes images of the cloth itself.
Some waffle-weave fabrics have as much depth and shape as an actual Belgian waffle. This depth is especially appreciated by weavers because most of the fabrics we weave are so very flat. Creating such marvelous texture by crossing the warp and weft in their flat plane on the loom seems like magic.
What's even better, waffle weave can be woven on simple looms.
Two of the projects in this book are woven on a rigid-heddle loom, seven on four shafts, one on six, three on seven, and one on eight.
You’ll especially appreciate the “Waffle-Weave Handbook,” by Kathryn Wertenberger Meile, which gives thirteen threading, tie-up, and treadling drafts for different numbers of shafts—plus waffle-weave tips.
The projects in this book use a wide range of yarns and setts (from fine cottons to thick, soft wools) so that you can mix and match drafts and materials for original fabrics.
You’ll discover that the special texture of waffle weave gives more absorbency and/or insulation than almost any other handwoven fabric.
