Novelty yarn project

Weaving course at South West TAFE – one of our projects is to experiment with weaving novelty yarns.

weaving novelty yarn samples

After a lot of searching I decided to use a cotton chenille yarn, a cotton tape yarn and a cotton blend yarn as the main yarns. I purchased them from Colinette. It was cheaper to purchase them directly from the UK than it was through their agent here in Australia. And it arrived just as quickly in the post.

At this stage I am still weaving samples. I love the way the cotton tape weaves.
