Rep Weave: Placemats (4 shafts) & Table Runner (16 shafts) Warp-faced rep weave, sometimes referred to as warp rep, mattor, or ripsmatta, is a relative of shadow weave.

Rep Weave: Placemats (4 shafts) & Table Runner (16 shafts)

They are alike in that the structure of both these weaves is mostly plain weave and light and dark ends alternate in the warp and are threaded on pairs of shafts. They differ in that the warp in warp rep is sett much closer and thick and thin wefts alternate to create horizontal ridges with an interesting, ribbed texture. Having woven rep weave before, I wanted to give it another try and learn more about it. Following are images, drafts, and notes describing my recent rep weave projects that were great fun to weave. Rep Weave (Warp Rep) Placemats (4 shafts) While researching this topic, I came across a unique article I found online at, “Mattor,” by Robert Frederic Heartz, published in 1936.

The three-layer false doubleweave got another washing, this time with a gentler program (I did not want it to shrink further, I just wanted to get rid of the pressed look).

Of course I forgot to measure brfore, but it can't have shrunk much (I think). However, the pressed end still showed as flatter than the rest. I think the mangled end reverted to "almost untreated". I let it dry out completely. It then had this, um, slightly hard hand that line-dried things can have. Kerstin's extras. Tartans, wallhangings, handwoven fabric, Linda L Davis, Linda Davis.

Contact Linda to pay and arrange for shipment. Outside North America, please Contact Linda for prices. This workshop is designed to solve the mystery of how to develop original designs and convert them to tied weave structures through block design and profile drafts. The CD contains threadings, treadlings, WIF files, and images for sixteen structures, and sample sheets for recording results. Study Groups Not everyone is in a large enough guild to have a workshop make sense because you need to do at least the first 12 samples to really understand the possibilities of tied weaves.

This is a class sampler I wove back in May – so if my recap of the theory is wrong, please let me know so I can correct it :) Liz (Calnan – my weaving teacher) explained that diversified plain weave is a development of plain weave.

Diversified Plain Weave sampler « Fibres of Being

Thick and thin yarns are used in sets of three – thin, thick, thin – in both warp and weft. You need 4 yarns: a thick dark and a thin dark, a thick light and a thin light. The thin threads provide a stable plain weave ground. The thick threads in warp and weft dominate visually. An example. I can have my pattern and stability by adding extra thin threads and using diversified plain weave. From a distance the circle design is still apparent. Let’s take a closer look at what I did. The top right 6 x 6 grid of the tie up looks the same. Some extra work using the two shuttles, and some extra chunkiness in the design. Here’s that design on the sampler/scarf. The pattern is the same on the back, but the negative image (ie lights and darks swapped).
