foundations of weaving



Written by Mike Halsey & Lore Youngmark

Vintage hardcover copy of Foundations of Weaving. This book is an explicit, comprehensive and practical introduction to many types of loom weaving — from basic plain weave on a frame loom to twill, herringbone and waffle waves on four-harness looms. In the first chapter, you will explore the basic terms and materials of weaving — sett, sheds, selvage, warp and weft. Chapters two and three describe various simple looms such as the frame, box and roller looms, and how to use them. Subsequent chapters discuss the color and texture of yarns; basic and advanced weave structures; floor and table looms; the designing, mending and finishing cloth.
