Series: Part 2

“Like guitar strings of glorious colour, the warp threads of wool to be woven begin to dance as the loom turns under the weaver’s power. Each tightly spun strand of bright yarn is held by its own tiny heddle, pulling and pushing the wrap into the positions required for patterns of herringbone, twill and plaid.” – Mike Donald
