Ocean's Wake

New Texture. 

I've been wanting to expand beyond the standard colors of cotton that we use for the warp (vertical yarns). We've created a couple of new patterns that use wool for the warp, a combination of thin white and thick dark grey natural. It gives a great texture to the background color group. This one is called Ocean's Wake.

With this weave structure, a bit of the pattern color shows up in the background. You can see this more clearly in the stripe version below. When the triangle is turquoise, the background shape has a little turquoise in it. 

If we wanted to get rid of that effect, we could make long floats on the back. But I think it's part of the charm.

After finishing this Darby Cape Blue 8'x 10', we had some extra warp so we created new color ways. These  two new guys, Darby Bronze Lapis and Darby Smoke have rich, winter colors.

The vertical warp yarns play a more active roll when you have a dark background color. We love the sparkle of gold.
