In this week’s episode of A Handwoven Experience, I’m talking all about weaving 2 separate fabrics at the same time using the magic of double weave.
Double weave can offer us a lot of options, but at the core of this technique is the ability to weave parallel layers simultaneously. Once you understand what that looks like and what to watch for, the other double weave techniques will all make sense!
Enjoy episode 101 right here!
