Weave these stunning pillows using our popular 8/2 Aurora Earth, 100% mercerized cotton yarn.
Aurora Earth is perfect for this color study because there are so many color gradations to choose from.
Designed using summer and winter block weave structure. The secret of success to weave a harmonious color gradation is to introduce a new color as the tabby weft in one block and then using it for the pattern weft in the next block. The resulting fabric looks complicated while in truth it is not and any beginning weaver can master this technique.
Weave these pillows on any 4-shaft, 27" loom with a 12 dent reed. Choose from two or four pillows in three different colorways.
This project is featured in the Handwoven March/April 2011 magazine which you will need for all the warping, weaving and finishing instructions. Be sure to order the digital edition of this Handwoven magazine if you don't already have this issue.
You'll save by ordering this kit, because we've wound just the right amount (plus some) of the 8 color shades you'll need to complete this project; without having to purchase full cones of each color!
