Rainbow Black Towels in Progress

The rainbow warp on the Baby Wolf has been waiting patiently while I spun more silk and plied up Mr. Debbie's polwarth wool sweater yarn (1750 yards! I'll show you that when it's been washed and dried...)

I started weaving yesterday, and I'm super-pleased with the fabric that's emerging:

The draft is called "breaks and recesses", and those little swirls will turn into little flowerets when the towels are washed. I love how the black makes the colors POP!


  1. I recognize that pattern! :) I'm due to make some more myself...
    Love the black and colours...

    Great job..

  2. Oh wow, that's gorgeous! Love the colours against the black :)

  3. I love the pattern. And black is definitely the right choice for working with bright rainbow colors.

  4. What did you use for the weft? thank you.
