A comprehensive introduction to the tools, equipment, fibers, and yarns used with four-shaft looms, this reference features patterns for 600 different weaves, including twill, zigzag, diamond, herringbone, and block. Color photographs and large-scale drawings allow weavers to closely examine the details, and the compact size and lay-flat binding is convenient for keeping near the loom.

A handbook that is essential for all four-shaft weavers, this manual includes weaving basics, specialized projects organized by degree of difficulty, finishing techniques, resources, and a glossary of terms.

Inside you'll find:

  • Explanations of basic weave structures
  • Information on choosing and using looms and shuttles
  • Colour charts and swatches
  • Advice on working with colour, selecting and dyeing yarn, and suggested applications for your finished cloth

Industry Reviews

'Highly recommended for public libraries and textile collections in academic institutions. If you can buy only one book on handweaving this year, this is the one.' Library Journal

'[T]he book shows patterns with pleasant lines, and a variety of colors and fairly simple to understand directions on how to create some of the weaves. There is a broad selection of patterns covered and some hand-manipulated techniques also. The fact that the weaves are in so may different colors, and that some of the ‘standard’ weaves are also shown with ‘color and weave’ effects is food for thought for new weavers and old.'
