Lace & Flower Runners: Vintage Inspiration
This weaving kit includes all the yarns needed to weave these Lace & Flower Runners that were designed by Patrice George for Handwoven.
Inspiration for this lovely vintage runner comes from an antique swatch which features alternating areas of 3-thread huck (also called mock leno) and a 4-thread spot weave on a background of plain weave.
Yarns: The original swatch was woven in a very fine linen but we are using our fine weight Ecocot™ 100% organically-grown cotton.
