Tying in - Ladies Shepherd Check

Posted on September 15, 2016 by Kirstin Gault

Our Ladies Shepherd Check scarves have been tied on to our Mens's Weft Stripe scarves on the loom. 

Our Dornier Rapier looms date from the 1980s. Rapier looms are shuttle-less, with weft threads woven across the warp by little pincer like carriers called rapiers. These looms weave much faster than the shuttle driven Dobcross loom. The Dornier looms weave around 300 picks (weft threads) per minute, whilst the Dobcross loom weaves around 90 picks per minute.
