Sampling red leaf

The colour match is better in the photo to the left – the woven piece is the same as the one on the loom in my previous post. The mini skein of yarn is one ply of burgundy merino and one of the red leaf fibre, about 2.5m/g, spun up for the second sample…

…Which is the larger piece in the photo to the right, with the two ply in both warp and weft, woven at 7.5dpi. I like the first sample more – the finer texture feels nicer and drapes better, and I prefer how the colours play out with the red leaf just in the weft.

So now I have a decision, I can get on with spinning the rest of it!
