"I still consider myself a beginning weaver," Leanna says. She used machine-spun Shetland wool for the weft (10 epi) and hand-dyed Shetland for the weft. When she wet-finished the fabric, the difference between the machine-spun and hand-spun resulted in a luscious texture that looked as if it had been woven on more than two shafts.
LeAnna used a jacket pattern taken from one of her favorite alpaca sweaters, and constructed the jacket in Mary Sue Fenner's Weave, Cut and Sew class.
