Tubular tablet weaving. 60/2 silk. 12 cards threaded alternately S and Z. The dark longitudinal stripes are a dark purple, commercial dye, as is the gold. The brownish specks are well, brown. They're some of the silk and I dyed with black walnuts last year.

I stuck a lobster claw on it as a fastener. Don't know if it'll be needed, but I had it so I did it. I'm very pleased with it. I can see more of this in my future -- for a variety of purposes. It's a fun technique and once it's warped the weaving itself goes very quickly.
