2 The collections

Deflected double cloth


Deflected double weave can be used to create bold geometric patterns that look like an oversized color and weave effect.
These patterns are created with stripes of two colors in both the warp and the weft. These two colorsalthough lying next to each other both horizontally and verticallynever actually weave together. Only the matching colors will weave together (for example, the black warp weaves with black weft and white warp weaves with white weft). When not weaving, the weft yarn will float over or under the second cloth. These floats either reveal or conceal the opposite color and it is this action that creates the patterns. The name deflected double weave comes from this concept that there are two different-colored cloths weaving, although as these are side by side the result feels like a single cloth.

Applications
This collection makes quite a heavyweight cloth, kept very soft and tactile because of the lambswool and cashmere content. Because the fabrics are soft and cozy, they are perfect for blankets or throws, which could be paired with matching or coordinating cushions. These fabrics could also be applied to a coat or jacket. The weight and super-softness means that you wont need to line the garment, as it should feel nice against the skin. You will, however, need to consider how the pattern may be affected by seams or panelling in a garment, and choose the garment pattern accordingly.

The yarns
Warp yarns
sett at 16 e.p.i.
2/8 Spun silk Chunky 2-ply silk, one of the heavier weights of silk available to weave with. It is expensive so you may want to weave a practice warp with a viscose yarn of similar weight which will give you the same shine.

Weft yarns

2/28 Cashmere: Apple, Baby blue, Lilac, Bubblegum, Tangerine. Delicate 2-ply cashmere yarn, designed for knitting with. This yarn is not strong enough in the warp but its delicacy adds a softness to the finished fabric.

Once these designs have been woven and you have an understanding of how the patterns are created, challenge yourself technically by designing your own simple patterns and seeing if you can translate these using the deflected double cloth construction. While designing your pattern, it is important to remember that there are four blocks in the warptwo light and two dark. You must design your own pattern within this repeat. Use graph paper to help you work out whether the warp and weft floats are on the surface or the back of the fabric, in order to create the shapes within the design.

1/10 Mohair Fine mohair designed to be used on a fine-gauge knitting machine. You can use knitting yarns in the warp as long as they are strong enough.

Notes
This collection has been lightly feltedhandwashed in warm water with washing detergent. While washing, the fibers are gently rubbed together until they start to matt lightly together. This helps to add texture as the different yarns will all shrink at slightly different rates. Squeeze out any excess water and lightly iron the fabric before leaving it to dry flat.

2/14 Lambswool: Black, Wine, Turquoise, Ecru, Khaki. 2-ply knitting yarn that felts beautifully. It also feels soft when washed. It is not strong enough for the warp but is great for the weftespecially as the felting means you do not need to sew or tie loose warp threads.

1 Architecture
A strong horizontal turquoise stripe is broken at small intervals by cream stops. The khaki threads help to knock back the black, resulting in a richly subtle cool green that offsets the punchier turquoise. On the back of the fabric, the pattern looks the same, with the diagonals within the cream squares reversed.

4 The collections

Elasticized double cloth


Create three-dimensional surfaces with geometric patterning by using a combination of elasticized and nonelasticized yarns on a block-threaded warp.
In this collection, the warp made is an end and end warp, meaning that two colors have been wound alternately when making the warp. In this case, the two colors are navy and white. (To save time, the two threads can be wound simultaneously and then threaded alternately when they are passed through the heddles.) The two colors in the warp are threaded alternately (the navy threads are on the odd shafts1, 3, 5, 7while the white threads are on the even shafts2, 4, 6, 8). This allows the colored threads to be woven as two separate cloths. Two blocks are created in the threading (block A on shafts 14 and block B on shafts 58). Using different lifting plans, it is possible to weave two cloths in both blocks, exchanging the cloth on the top with the one on the bottom.

Applications
These fabrics are stretchy and decorative. They have a similar construction to those used in Margo Selbys trademark fabrics, which are applied to fashion items and furnishings. Because of their stretchy nature, the fabrics also work particularly well as garments, such as jackets, jumpers, and dresses.

The yarns
Weft yarns
1/14 Lambswool Pink, Turquoise. This 1-ply knitting yarn is very delicate and would not be suitable as a warp yarn, but is perfect as a weft yarn.

Development ideas

Warp yarns

There are a multitude of designs that can be created by changing the scale and proportions of the blocks. The width of the blocks can be altered by changing the threading plan; the lengths of the blocks can be explored in the weaving. If you are using more than eight shafts you could create more than two blocks and a more complex geometric pattern. As an alternative to elastic yarn, experiment with overspun/crepe yarns. Using a wool that felts alongside the nonstretch yarns will also help to create the threedimensional forms, but without the stretch.

2/28 Cashmere Delph, Princess, Lime, Robin. This is a delicate 2-ply cashmere yarn designed for knitting, but which, when used as the weft, creates super-soft fabric.

2/12 Mercerized cotton Blazer, White. Set at 30 e.p.i. A strong yarn ideal for warps, which is easy to handle and to weave. The mercerization is a process of finishing the thread, which leaves the thread with a sheen and luster. Wind two colors together to create a striped-warp effect, known as an end and end warp.
