I'm posting a few pictures of finished items just to show the differences in texture between pieces that are woven in the same manner, but with different yarns. The top one is woven with hand spun (by me) and with cotton warp. The next is woven with Red Heart acrylic yarn and a nylon warp. I wasn't happy with the second piece, not because of the yarn, but because of the warp threads. They seemed to stretch and I ended up cutting the piece off early. I guess I can sew it together to make a purse. The yarn actually made a pretty piece, being variegated. I'll probably try it again using some of the Maysville cotton warp.
