The rigid heddle opens up a different realm of possibility.
I began with a warp of indigo dyed handspun cotton from Laos, with some of my handspun singles as a center stripe.
The textured row is a cabled yarn I spun. I hadn't been thrilled with it, but while using it in this weaving I became more enthralled.
While it was relatively unconsidered, this warp turned out to be something that would not work very well at all on a backstrap, so it was a good choice for my first RH weaving. All those Lao cotton singles are irregular, and countless warps broke during the weaving.
With irregularity as a feature, I was able to just keep tying on a new length of warp, and the blips in my own handspun added to the rustic texture.
It finished out at a good size, loose but smooth, and I loaded up the end with cabled handspun, since I had budgeted it too strictly in the striping.
