Weaving with specialty and
 novelty yarns


      Hazel explained this
       technique to me.
    Check out her website for
       great little looms.

       Hazel Rose Looms
                     Delicate Yarns

Any fiber which
will not stand up
to the abrasion of
heddle or shuttle
may be
perfect for use
on the triloom.
   Continuous weave method also damaging

Even the normal triloom “continuous weave” method can be too abrasive
   on yarns with large slubs or other extending fibers.
                    Pre-warped Loom

 By pre-warping the loom the amount of shed that must be cleared for
  each yarn pass is reduced to the actual size of the yarn.
                     How to Pre-Warp

 With the hypotenuse at the top, starting at the apex nail, run the yarn
  up to the Rightmost Nail or peg.
                       Pre-Warping 2

 Continue running the yarn, hooking it on each successive nail
  maintaining an even tension.
First Weave

          Once the loom is
           dressed, attach the weft
           to the left-most top nail
           and weave a loop down,
           towards the right. You
           will continue weaving
           top to bottom by
           weaving loops through
           the warp.
         Mandatory edge techniques

 In the “continuous weave” style, all three sides are
  stable.

 The “pre-warp weave” style, requires additional
  techniques.
    careful weaving near the hypotenuse and arms
    right arm loops must be secured.
          Weaving through the loops

 To insure that the weaving is    Additionally, the first few
  stable it is necessary to         passes should also be woven in

                                    bottom.
  threads at every hypotenuse
  nail.
       Balancing the tight weave areas


 Once the first few passes are completed you may
  wish to begin weaving a different pattern:
    Basket weave
    Twill

 Care should be taken, to maintain the tighter weave
  for the full length of the hypotenuse, and to mirror
  the number of tight weave rows on the left arm at the
  right.
Finishing the Right arm

             When your weaving is done
              leave a long tail of yarn.

             Thread the tail through a
              darning needle and needle-
              weave through the unwoven
              loops.
                 Additional finishing

 Shawl is now stable and can be worn as is.
 Other finishing techniques:
    Cut Fringe – on the loom
    Continuous fringe – 2 ended ball for spiral
    Crochet – single crochet & other patterns
    Knit – picked up edgings


   Hint: a finer yarn makes a better finisher.
