Beautiful handwoven wool pillow with a down insert. Gray and white wave shadow weave.
18” x 18”
Starting with cones of wool thread. Then winding the thread onto a warping wheel. So I can thread it on to the loom.
I chain those thread together to keep them organized and place them on lease sticks.
Then I lay the lease sticks across the front beam of the loom and now I am ready to start warping the loom.
Each of the 480 threads has to be threaded through the reed and then through the heddles. Now I'm ready to start weaving your pillow. Each pillow takes about two hours to weave. When all the weaving is done I take off the pillow from the loom and wash and dry them. Then each pillow is created and gets a down insert and then the pillow is hand stitched closed. It is now ready for your home.
