Natural Dobcross Throw - Tying in

Posted on April 13, 2017 by Kirstin Gault

The warp for our natural throw has been tied into our Victorian Dobcross loom.

The wool was carded and spun on our ‘Grade A’ listed spinning mule which dates back to 1870, and the throw is now away to be woven using our fully restored historic 19th Century Dobcross shuttle loom. These Victorian machines are becoming very rare and produce a unique woven selvedge, which forms the edge of the throw.

Colours of yarn used: white, dirty white, and 
blue steel.
