Color always makes me happy and this warp didn't disappoint. When the threads are stretched on the loom before weaving begins, the colors are always more intense. When the weft threads (threads woven across) interact with the warp, the result is a muted or darken version of the original hues. The intensity of this particular warp was a feast for my eyes and for everyone else who walked into my studio this past week. It was one of those warps I hated to actually cut off the loom. Yesterday I did the deed and the fabric is now ready to sew. It will become three beautiful happy garments.
