My latest tablet weaving project is an experiment with different weft. The tablets are threaded in three holes which makes the weft visible in certain turns. The pattern is a simple V-shape, like this one, with wool yarns (20/2 redgarn) that I dyed earlier this year.

Weft: grey wool, probably 5/2

Weft: green wool, 20/2, same as the warp. I've used two threads on the left part, and one on the right part.

Weft: white linen, 16/2

So far I really like the linen, it really makes the pattern pop out as well as giving it a subtle effect. I was disappointed with the green wool, it’s to dark and to thin. Using a double thread made the result slightly better but unfortunately it drowned out the pattern. Next up is grey linen thread.
