I love this warp!Â It is weaving up beautifully with the green wefts.Â Here is a photo of it early on:
The sparkle was nearly impossible to capture except edge-0n.Â This photo gives a better view of the overall pattern:
The pattern is nothing too exceptional, but I love the color!, and the sparkle is amazing!Â There are four sections: polyester thread (matte finish), transparent lurex (a little sparkly), gold metallic embroidery thread (metallic glimmer), and transparent nylon thread, which is my favorite and is delightfully opalescent.Â The weft is a chartreuse 20/2 tencel yarn, with a strand of gold metallic embroidery thread thrown in every fourth pick.
The colors are so beautiful that it seems a pity to burn away any of the fabric!Â But I will need to, both to learn the devore technique and to see how the fine synthetic threads look when the tencel is removed.Â Â Pretty as it is, this cloth is only the beginning.Â And if I can get the underneath fabric to work as I am envisioning…the combination will be stunning.
Crossing my fingers that I can make this work!
