A visit to a wonderful weaver

We have had a nice autumn day with Kirstine Packalén in Aneby, Småland, Sweden.

A tip!

If you have a lot of samples from a workshop dyeing yarn, do as Kirstine,

make a rya with a diagonal of each colour.

Leave a space = one knot in a diagonal to make the pattern.

Or weave with chenille…

In the next issue 4/14 of Vävmagasinet we show you how.

Dukagång what we call a Blådrätt Blå is for Blue since the weft is dyed blue. This one is woven by Hanna Larsdotter year 1767.
