Undulating Twill Wool Blankets Underway

The wool blankets in an undulating twill pattern like the silky scarves look really super on the loom. The neutral colours work well together. The first blanket has the same wool in the warp used for the weft.

The next two blankets are woven with handspun brown Shetland wool, and this one uses the same pattern:

This third blanket is almost finished, and then I will weave with handspun grey Romney wool from the Wenger Sheep Farm.

I know I'll return to the twill blocks someday, but for now the undulating twill is a refreshing change and the dreamy waves are great for blankets.


  1. Is this pattern for an 8 shaft loom? I assume it can't be done on a 4 shaft...? By the way, your work is beautiful! :)

    1. This is for an 8 shaft, you're right. I don't know if a 4 shaft is suitable for undulating twill, but you got me thinking and I should look that up.
      And thanks! :)

  2. Beautiful undulating twills! I'm so glad I stumbled upon your site.
