That Red Warp

Here's a closeup of the first piece on that red warp. The weft is the bright fuschia, and my belief is that after wet finishing, it's gonna be a stunner. I like multishaft crackle, because of the "microlace" effect. This threading was created using the "block substitution" tool on an advancing twill original.

Because there are max 3-end floats (either warp- or weft-direction) on a plainweave ground, the cloth can be extremely iridescent, with bright spots created by the floats. Especially with a lustrous rayon yarn in both directions.

This one will be a cowl. Can't wait to see how the other colors that emerged from the dyepots will look!
