Has everyone seen this BBC documentary about the last velvet mill in Venice?

How cool ... We have been on Lisio tours twice within the past 3 years. It’s an amazing place and I subscribe to their beautifully published magazine. By the way ... Happy New Year! Chris and I just returned from a holiday, 18 day tour with friends ... London (Anni Anlbers at the Tate ... awesome), Cape Town tours, 3 days of Safari, 3 days at Victoria Falls, and then back to London for 2 1/2 days,  ... “Fashioned by Nature” at the V&A ... mind blowing!  ... and then home. Just returned this past Friday and spent the weekend in Millbrook to Recover. Headed to NC tomorrow. Have never been away for 18 days! Definitely leaves a new impression of the world ... retirement looks nicer and nicer. By the way, what do we need to do to get together? Weekends look open and we make a nice fire ... sleep overs are welcome. Take a look at calendars and let us know what might work. Too much time has gone by. It’s time to reconnect!

This is the most comprehensive book on velvet and other pile fabrics I know of in English! Published by Crompton , once the best pile fabric mill in the USA


For training in traditional velvet design, look into Lisio in Florence, Italy.

Hello Cate,

Maybe you can get in touch with Wendy Landry who teaches velvet weaving seminars. I'm glad I could assist to one years ago in Valleyfield (Que, Canada).


Lots of links about her work on Google.

I've seen technical drawings of the looms used for the face to face velvet,
but not information about designing.
You might want to contact the textile departments of universities that offer
degrees in textile design and engineering and see what they have in their
libraries.

I couldn't get into the site either directly but was able to get to it from another site that had a link - not sure of the difference.  Anyway, she does sell scarf blanks.  The info is here - https://www.machineknittingtodyefor.com/product-category/kits-and-booklets/

Try going to your local library to get Nancy Roberts contact info. I know she was doing blanks from silk for weavers.

I knit my own.  Sock blanks will work, they usually run 2 threads together in the knit process, so when unravelled, the socks match.

Hi Susan

Actually there is a reason.

Using my own specific technique, I can achieve "resists" (i.e. variations in color) with just bundles of yarn.

Using that technique in a mini-version, I am sure I can achieve variation in color with a knit blank.

Think creatively !!

Another option would be to buy a very simple used knitting machine. You can then knit blanks to your heart’s content with any yarn you choose. I have found some nice ones on Craigslist. The first one I had was given to me by someone in our Guild and I have since passed that one on to someone else.

To clarify....the idea behind the knit blank is the potential for a unique (and hopefully beautiful) resist formed in the knitting that will show up (when unraveled)  in a fascinating form in the woven scarf.

Louise,

An alternative would be to weave your own blanks. Make the sett of your "to-be-rewoven" warp very open to facilitate unweaving, with a slippery weft of finer grist. Dye  your blank, remove the weft, and weave with the intended weft at a normal sett.
