The warp yarn is 2/8 navy Orlec, the weft is 2/8 Orlec in navy, emerald and teal, the cell is 4 ply turquoise rayon. This piece was sett at 24 epi, and planned for garments. Due to the long floats on the reverse side, we used fuseable interfacing to stabilize the fabric. We found that the rayon was very slippery and had a tendency to unravel on the bobbin, painful, but worth it.
Well, years go by quickly and finally in October 2008 I made my vest! Only 9 years too late! Because I'm a tad wideish, I chose to weave the honeycomb linear rather than offset, anything to minimize the girth!
There were just a few wee scraps leftover and I could not toss them, so here they are, reinvented as sacks for purse hangers.What's a purse hanger you ask? Only the neatest contraption ever invented...it's a lovely little weighted disk with a hook that wraps around it for storage.
