Weaving a vintage moose wall art on my 16-shaft loom was always on my to-do list. I finally decided to spend some time designing this in a 16-shaft summer & winter technique. Eva Stossel has written a nice blog about this summer & winter technique. Summer & winter is a Scandinavian block weaving, woven with 2 shuttles. It’s special because the front and back are inverted. In the old days, plaids woven with this technique were very common in Sweden. During winter they showed one side of the plaid, in summer they showed the other side. So a wallhanging, plaid or table runner made with this technique can be displayed both ways. Because I wanted to have an ‘old Scandinavian’ vintage look, I choose green alpaca for the pattern and unbleached cottolin for the ground cloth. The moose are separated by a ‘green lawn’ in silk yarn.
