Silk, equally exquisite in the skein as it is woven into luxurious garments, is the newest focus of Handwoven’s latest eBook, Weaving with Silk - A Dozen Projects on Four and Eight Shafts - Best of Handwoven Yarn Series - eBook Printed Copy and Halcyon Yarn is your only source for a “printed” version. Its pages are filled with more than just patterns. Both novice and experienced weavers will appreciate additional information on the history of silk, current trends, stories behind the woven silk projects as well as tips and tricks for weaving with silk.
Weaving with Silk is a collection of a dozen projects on both 4 and 8 shafts. Primarily scarves, these patterns can easily be expanded to create woven yardage which can be later transformed into beautiful garments. Weaving techniques used in the patterns include huck-lace, twill, crackle weave, overshot, lace with warp patterning and beaded leno. Look to Halcyon’s Signature, 2/30 Gemstone Silk Yarn as a yarn source for many of the patterns.
Just a reminder, Halcyon Yarn is your exclusive source for “printed” versions of all the popular Handwoven eBooks. They are printed in full color on acid-free coated stock, saddle-stitched and ready for immediate browsing and convenient posting next to your loom. Booklets focus on a specific yarn, weaving technique or type of project, providing several patterns from previously published Handwoven magazines, each with detailed instructions and illustrations.
