I’ve finally finished my coverlet sample with a good portion woven with handspun merino, and it’s off the loom. Hurrah!
After 3 months, and 4 different samples, I’ve achieved a fabric which feels light but substantial. It has washed well and I’m amazed how well the handspun merino has behaved.
I don’t think I’ll ever weave the full coverlet using this exact pattern but it has definitely given me food for thought.
