Merino & Silk Fabric Length, by June McKenzie


The warp is a very fine 2 ply merino with a heavier 2 ply silk in warp stripes with a fine boucle wool in some spaces. The same merino is used for the weft. A certain amount of crabbing (or tracking) of the plain weave has resulted, giving the fabric an interesting shimmering effect.
