My passion for the lively texture of collapse weave continues. The shawls are woven in plain weave using an overtwist Habu Textiles wool crepe as the fiber that gives the weave its springy liveliness. At 2/48 this is so fine as to be almost invisible in the weft. And with the loosely set warp threads the garment just off the loom is light as air. The overtwist wool crepe creates magic when the shawl is put into water and collapses about 30%; giving the fabric its soft pleats.
