Loom-controlled doubleweave is explored in depth in this handbook of out-of-print articles from textile innovators Weaver's and Prairie Wool Companion. Detailed instructions and gorgeous photographs illustrate how to design and weave 30 different projects including placemats, coverlets, jackets, bags, wall hangings, and throws using four- to sixteen-shaft looms. 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.
