Second Run of Shetland Wool Blankets

My second set of Shetland wool blankets is underway. I've beamed the warp in a range of greys and browns.

These blankets will be woven in a 16-thread twill pattern, similar to what I use for many of my towels, in 15 lengthwise stripes that are each 10 cm (4 inches) wide. I'm curious to see how the twill works in the Shetland wool with alternating colours in some of the stripes. Stay tuned!
