Tube in a Tube

Since the last post, I have been experimenting with the tube in a tube weaving structure.  I started out using linen and cotton for my first samples, and was using the lace weaving techniques I tried in my last project.



I used wool for another sample as you can see below.

I had some sisal yarn laying around and also decided to do a sample with it.  It isn’t a very cozy fiber, but I really like it’s attitude in that way and have since decided to use it in my final.

This ended up creating a different structure than what I had sampled before.  I put some metal in the outer tube with the cotton and used the sisal in the inner tube.  I decided that the structure of this sample was what I wanted out of this weaving, and that I would try dying the sisal fiber since I enjoyed having the color on my other samples.

I have started on my sampling for my final project and have been using cotton and wool so far.  The wool is the colored stripes.

I am excited to see how this turns out, and have plenty of work to get back to, so until I finish my finals…over and out!
