pictures don't quit do justice
Just warped quit a bit of off white on the loom so may try a rug with the black and tan with it and see how it looks. Actually when you weave selvage often the warp only shows on the ends, but still you want it to look good.
So Mike, I will be interested to see what colors you got! And what will you weave? Rugs I am sure but the gal in Branson had some hand bags made by folding the small rug and stitching the sides, (putting the ends to the side) Then she used a 1 inch wide heavy webbing for straps. Made a nice tote. Tell me if you have other ideas and have you ever done weaving with selvage?? If so I have the website of where I order my cotton selvage, & have gotten quite an assortment. Last time I ordered you didn't have a choice on amount or color, just a huge 80# box. I am still weaving on it! Check out Leesburg Looms and Supply.
Again the pictures aren't quite bright enough to do justice, Hope you like your investment. Merry Christmas!
