Your Rigid Heddle Weaving projects with Berroco yarns

Ravelry isn’t just for knitting and crocheting! There are weavers sharing their projects there, too. Gabi recently shared her  swatch of Berroco Suede using her pin loom as “proof of concept” in the Berroco Lover’s group on Ravelry (see the photo above). Her verdict: “Weavers of rigid heddle looms might consider trying it for a great suede/leather effect.” She sent me down a rabbit hole of wandering though the many great projects Ravelers made with rigid heddle looms and Berroco yarns.

Nora used the “Plaid Muffler” pattern, a design by Stephanie Flynn Sokolov, from Woven ScarvesThis is woven on a rigid heddle loom, and then the fabric is washed and fulled for a “felted” finished fabric. Nora made several more of these in other color ways—they’re amazing! Check them out here.

Pheelya‘s beautiful, simple 2-color scarf woven with Vintage on a 10″ Cricket loom:

This project shows how interesting even a simple plain weave can be when worked in 2 colors. The pink and grey shades play beautifully off one another and with the Vintage color palette the possible color combinations are endless.

This project really fascinates me—I’d love to see more of the “jacquard-effect” printed sock yarns woven. I think this makes a lovely scarf but I can see this as lovely placemats as well. Sox is an easy care yarn, perfect for a high performance project like home decor.

Have you woven with any of Berroco’s yarns? We would love to hear about it! Tell us in the comments below or share your projects in the Berroco Lover’s group on Ravelry.
