New Carron Throw - Warp

Posted on June 19, 2017 by Kirstin Gault

Cones of yarn are arranged on the creel in accordance with the pattern of the cloth. The yarn threads are then wound in sections onto the warping mill to create the warp. 

The design for these new throws is based on our popular Carron Scarf. This is the first time that a super soft geelong yarn has been used.

Bright and Colourful Throws - Weaving

Posted on June 09, 2017 by Kirstin Gault

These bright and colourful throws are currently being woven on our Dornier loom.

Dornier Rapier looms date from the 1980s. Rapier looms are shuttle-less, with weft threads woven across the warp by little pincer like carriers called rapiers. These looms weave much faster than the shuttle driven Dobcross loom. The Dornier looms weave around 300 picks (weft threads) per minute, whilst the Dobcross loom weaves around 90 picks per minute.
