Loom-controlled doubleweave is explored in depth in this handbook of out-of-print articles from textile innovators Weaver's and Prairie Wool Companion.

Instructions on the various ways to produce multiple layers with a loom—block-double weaves, stitched double cloths, and double-layered color effects—are provided alongside basic and intermediate-level drafting illustrations.
