Many years ago, I remember reading an article, publish in the magazine Weavers Journal, about an interesting structure known as Peruvian Inlay. Now the name seemed to be a little misleading. There wasn’t any inlay that I recall, but it was fascinating because it combined both warp and weft supplementary threads.
Carefully placed threads in the warp produced vertical pattern floats on call. The tie-up and treadling order places weft floats on the surface and on the back of the fabric. The structure produces a patterned grid that resembles stair steps or can be woven to diamond configurations on a Plain Weave ground fabric. It’s truly marvelous how it works.
In this workshop you will learn how to design a pattern using this unique threading system. You will then warp and weave a scarf in the Peruvian inlay technique. We suggest that you use a Tencel or cotton thread for the ground fabric and then choose a wool or Perle cotton thread for the supplementary thread.
