Weaving Iridescence


by Bobbie Irwin

Book Description

Iridescent fabric shimmers and glows, changing colours depending on how the light hits it. Different colours appear in the folds and pleats, adding surprising layers of colour to fabric. To the uninformed it appears magical and difficult, but the truth is that weaving iridescent fabric is accessible to any handweaver who knows the tricks.

Bobbie Irwin has been teaching the techniques for weaving iridescence in person and through articles for more than ten years. In this book, she delivers her most comprehensive course yet, covering the details from how to evaluate and choose yarn to achieve your desired effect to the ways weave structure affects iridescence to the best uses for your iridescent fabric. Hands-on project instructions will have you exploring what you've learned right away.

If you have been looking to add some shimmer to your weaving, this is the only book you will ever need!
