A few days ago, I introduced you to Anita Heist and her hand woven craft! Well, late last night I received a note from Anita with a picture of her progress on Kelly’s tallit:
In the email, Ms. Anita explained,
…the cloth looks window-screeny on the loom. This is correct. It will “bloom” in the wet-finishing. In the mills, the non-wet-finished piece is called greige goods. After that the piece can be hand-washed any time you want to. It will be stable. sot, and not have the spaces between the threads like it does on the loom.
This is an educational process in addition to being visually stimulating.
If you would like to contact Anita for something special and unique, firstname.lastname@example.org .
