Lambspun’s Double Weave Experience
The time has come for us to offer a double weave class for the weavers who are ready to advance their skills. Since this will be a pop-up class, we wanted to make it an experience. There will be 10 spots available in this class; 5 students will be on a 4-harness loom and 5 students will be on an 8-harness loom.
Dates and Times: 9 AM to 1 PM – Saturday, July 21 AND Saturday, August 4
- 30 minute private planning meeting (to be scheduled before July 21)
- 6 hours class time with instructor
- Use of a multiple shaft loom (let us know if you would prefer to use your own loom)
- Lunch provided both days from 12 PM to 1 PM
- 15% discount on yarn purchases for project

Call now at 970-484-1998 or register online to reserve your 4- or 8-harness loom. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions that we can accommodate for you. Because of the limited space in this class, we are asking for payment when registering to secure your spot. This will be a retreat for weavers and is already popular. We have 6 spaces left for this summer class, so claim your spot soon so you can be part of this unique and creative experience.
Double weave is an advanced weaving technique which has several different applications to create some impressive projects. With double weave, you weave two layers of fabric at the same time. The pattern of the throws and number of shuttles used will differentiate the outcome of your creation. This technique is a great way to weave a project double the width of your loom, create a seamless bag ready to use off the loom, or create pillow coverings to spice up the decor in your living room. These are just a couple of the endless project ideas.
When weaving the two layers of fabric, each layer is threaded through every other shaft. This cuts the number of shafts available for pattern work to be cut in half. For 4-harness looms, a simple twill is the available pattern for both layers. With an 8-harness loom, 4 shafts are available for pattern work; therefore, weaving a double weave on an 8-harness allows you to still do 4-shaft patterns.
