Hairdo Girl (working title) was cut off the loom last week. It's an experiment in Silvia Heyden's technique of extreme weft on the leftover warp from a previous tapestry. Silvia's tapestries are skewed because of weaving the weft at an extreme angle. She uses unforgiving, non-stretchy linen warp and linen weft giving a strong torque. My warp was seine twine, a forgiving fiber and wool weft. Also, I wove a border all way round, and that served to stabilize the torque.
I cut it off the loom, then washed it to see if it would torque. Nope. No torque. But I do like the chevron background and I will keep on playing with this technique. It's fun.
