Weaving on my Rigid Heddle Loom

I love weaving on my Rigid Heddle Loom!

Working for Cotton Clouds has lots of perks. One of them is getting my hands on all the gorgeous yarns and colors to design my own scarf and to be able to share my ideas & designs with you.

This is me, Jodi Ybarra wearing my handwoven Rigid Heddle Sampler Scarf.

Starting with a variegated yarn (Waikiki), then chosing colors that blended and complemented each other made designing these scarves so easy & so much fun to weave. It’s one thing to see all the colors and textures in the warp but as I was weaving and saw how the weft brought it all together right before my eyes, was truly amazing!

In my warp, I used  Waikiki Variegated as my base yarn, then added  Cotton Classic , Felicia, Bambu 7 and Cotton Twirl  yarns as warp stripes. It was then easy (and pretty quick) weaving a  3/2 Pearly Perle 100% mercerized cotton in  the weft.

Warping a Rigid Heddle loom takes so little time that you will be weaving in no time. I used a 20″ Schacht Flip Loom. Click here to see Cotton Clouds’ Flip Studio Special with everything you need to start weaving!

 I highly recommend “The Weaver’s Idea Book by Jane Patrick for many warping and weaving tips (click here) and a life-time source of textures and patterns you can use in your own rigid heddle weaving


Cotton Clouds has designed 12 color combinationsfor this Sample Scarf kit.  You will be able to make 2 different scarves on one warp! Check out this Cotton Clouds Rigid Heddle Sampler Scarf and experience the fun of blending colors, textures and yarns in your weaving!
