Rya weaving

This is on an Ashford Knitter’s loom, 20” width. Hemp/cotton warp, 5epi heddle.

My first Rya knots in place

I am weaving with Shetland and Devon fleece locks. The Shetland is a bit soft, but not good enough for spinning, so ideal for a practise run on the rigid heddle loom.

I am putting 8 picks of rug yarn between each line of knots. Its growing fast now, but I have just made a mistake so have to rip some back- very disheartening.
