Parents’ pillow

This is a pillow that was given to my parents.

Parents’ pillow

This was a second attempt to make a gift pillow on this warp. The sett is pretty tight for this pillow because I generally treat fabric for pillows as upholstery, thus requiring a tighter weave. With the striping being different between the warp and the weft meant that a perfectly balanced weave was not required.

The warp and the weft are both 5/2 mercerized cotton. The color treadling for this pillow is at a proportion of 5:2.

Below is a close up view of the weave structure. The weave structure for these pillows is 2-2 twill. The pattern requires 4 harnesses, and the sett is 24 e.p.i.
