Handwoven Home: Projects for the Rigid-Heddle Loom

Spinners, get ready to warp your rigid-heddle loom. Liz Gipson, a.k.a. Yarnworker, is back with another book devoted to this practical little loom! Liz set out to weave useful and beautiful textiles for every room in her house. Featuring twenty-one projects for the kitchen, dining room, living room, and bathroom, Handwoven Home is written with the newer weaver in mind. The Go Your Own Way Runner uses a supplementary weft inlay, which would showcase that special bit of handspun perfectly. Handspun odds and ends would weave up quickly into one-of-a-kind Oversized Mug Rugs. Ready to spin up your own cotton or linen for hand towels and placemats? Liz, a spinner herself, shares what characteristics make a good weaving yarn, from fiber content to construction.
