You know, we talk a lot about balance in weaving. But the context varies depending on what comes after the word, “balanced”.

Balanced weave, balanced twill, and balanced design are just 3 examples I’m going to tackle today in this week’s episode of A Handwoven Experience. So let’s all stand on one leg while we discuss balance in weaving.

Show Notes –

Balanced Beat – Did I mention that weavers are very concerned with balance? Another example is a “balanced beat”. This refers to how tightly or loosely you are smooshing your weft yarns with the beater bar. Gist has a lovely blog post about it right here so you can check it out. 

Different Types of Twill – If you’re intrigued by the idea of a balanced twill, you will definitely enjoy this earlier episode of A Handwoven Experience titled, “Different Types of Twill”. Click here to learn more.
