This is my second tablet woven belt. Instead of using wooden cards, I wove this belt with the Lacis brand of plastic cards. I found these slightly easier to handle because they are thinner than the wooden ones, so fit in the palm of my hand better.
I used Finnish cotton yarn for the warp and weft (6 ply Kalalanka) in light green and yellow.
No Ends: 40
No Cards: 10
Warp: 6 ply Kalalanka cotton, 4 yard length
Yellow: 20 ends
Green: 20 ends
Weft: Yellow 6 ply KalaLanka cotton.
Please check my PaivatarYarn Shop on Etsy for my new tablet weaving cards.
I now hand dye high quality worsted wool yarns with plant dyes that are suitable for tablet weaving. Please visit my shop on Etsy for more information. PaivatarYarn on Etsy.
