Weaving - Learning The Basics

Update 2022: It's been many, many years since I wrote this blog post and there are plenty more videos and tutorials available now than ever before. I'd recommend purchasing a copy of my book - The Woven Home as it is quite a comprehensive instruction book on weaving. I've also heard great things about Hello Hydrangea's online classes.

In this video, I demonstrate how to warp your weaving loom - this technique applies to any frame loom of The Unusual Pear

The next two videos demonstrate the technique I use for removing a finished woven piece from your weaving loom.  

The Weaving Loom has also put together some photographed instructions on warping with our looms and using various weaving techniques.

For more wonderfully helpful online weaving tutorials, you may also like to check out Heroic Acorn's YouTube channel!

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I have been spinning for a little over 5 years and have never once spun on a traditional spinning wheel with treadles. I’m sharing with you my favourite spinning methods on an e-spinner to create thick and low-twist yarns. These types of yarns are wonderful to incorporate into your fibre art as they are quick to weave up due to their thickness and they create beautiful texture as well.

Spinning - Bamboo Fibre

I had a lovely customer of mine named Jane ask about spinning bamboo and I thought I'd experiment and do a blog post for others who may be interested as well. 

Bamboo fibre compared to wool is much silkier, softer and lighter. I would consider this to be a more intermediate to advanced fibre to spin on it's own due to its slippery, silky nature. The staple length is approximately 10cm long.
