Weave Structures the Swedish Way

Author: Ulla Getzmann

This classic Swedish weaving text on the theory of drafting is finally available in English!

The clear and concise drafts show drawdowns, structure units, threadings, treadlings, and tie-ups.

The book starts with plain weaves and twills. All the twill variations presented are seen in fabric swatches on the front cover.

Swatches for the rest of the drafts are shown on the back cover of the book. These include satins and the traditional Swedish damask block weaves, each covered in its own chapter.

Details of profile drafting will be found here. These are followed by other authentic Swedish block weaves such as halvdräll, overshot and crackle. Those already familiar with the crackle weave may find this approach of interest.

The final chapter gives instructions on analyzing a fabric swatch to determine the structure, threading, treadling and tie-up.
