Weaving with Jacob wool
This is my first post and I'm confused as to whether or not it's going where I want it to. It's late tonight and I'm just going to go for it and see where this post ends up.
I'd like to hear about your Jacob wool projects.
I just finished 3 blankets for 2 different customers and as soon as i get some photos and figure out how to post them I'll do that. One is plaid. The large squares are black and they are bordered by thin lines of gray and white. This blanket was a trade for a ram who sired about half of this year's lambs. He tried to kill me once too many times and he's not here any more.
The other 2 blankets are for another Jacob breeder who sent their wool for blankets. I wove 2 blankets before Christmas and then they wanted 2 more. I like this kind of customer--I am free to design the blanket any way I want. These blankets have different width warp stripes of white, gray, and black. One is woven with gray weft in a broken twill and the other uses white weft in 2/2/1/1/1/1 twill.
