I think maybe Bonnie Inouye coined the term 'furrows' for this sort of collapse effect. :)
This is the last of the samples for A Good Yarn: Rayon and I just love when things turn out the way they were planned!
Even in the loom state the cloth is creating these lovely furrows. After wet finishing the cloth should collapse into deep 3 dimensional folds.
I've started cutting apart the 'before' samples and as soon as that is done I'll wet finish the rest of the web. Tonight I'll tie the yarn samples into their bouts and tomorrow Doug will start to staple the last of the sample pages. I will be pressing the huge stack that's accumulated over the holidays.
Monday I will start writing the text and we'll see how quickly that goes. I may have some copies ready to bring with me on my trip in January. "May" being the operative word....I still have to pack and do a few other things before I leave.
