Weft Dye Styles
There are many ways to dye your weft. Weft is the main way to customize your piece. The warp is ON the loom. It stays the same from one person to another. The warp runs Vertically. The WEFT is what gets woven in. The weft can create blocks. The weft can change every throw, every inch, if you wanted it to. Things to consider when choosing a weft:
- Thicker wefts will be more weft dominate. Especially when paired with a THIN warp.
- Variegated wefts tend to hide the weave.
- Variegated wefts with high contrast colors hide the weave MORE then wefts with low contrast.
- Pooling wefts look best with high contrast colors. Pooling wefts are time consuming to create and make sure they're correctly executed. there is only one weft that pools on its own (luxe silk) all other wefts need a pooling test ($25) to make sure they are executed properly.
- thicker wefts make larger pools then thinner wefts.
- Pooling can create stripes. This is something that must be considered as that may happen no matter how much we try to get it not to stripe in certain sections, just because of the way the skeins change in circumference.
