Create beautiful hangings to reference in your studio, or cheerful and functional settings to brighten your table this summer!

Homestead Gamp Kit in 8/2 Unmercerized Cotton
The 12 color (wheel) gamp is a traditional way of providing weavers with a chance to “play with the crayons”. This project creates a color study in a combination of plain weave with a corner motif in huck lace, to hang in your weaving space for reference. For this summery and light-hearted interpretation we have provided an opportunity to weave six practical and beautiful kitchen towels (18.5” x 27”) suitable for hanging or gifting, plus a set of six beautiful fringed oversized “picnic” napkins (18.5″ x 18.5”), perfect for al fresco dinners on the porch.
The project is suitable for intermediate beginners and beyond. This color study uses subdued versions of the 12 traditional colors plus black, white and grey in 8/2 Homestead unmercerized cotton. Written for a 4-shaft loom with a weaving width of at least 20.5 inches. Pattern suggests using 15 bobbins (one for each of 12 colors plus black white and grey) and three shuttles.
Sett: EPI 18 (we used a 12 dent reed with mixed sleying)
