Discover how to master and enjoy the lace-like, intricate, often mysterious-seeming leno weave with this comprehensive guide. For new weavers and advanced-level weavers alike, the book combines historical information about leno with the best practical instructions and secret tips resulting from the author's years of research and sampling. Leno weaves, also called gauze weaves, are very sheer, yet at the same time very durable because they are made with four warp threads that are twisted around each other. Here, colourful photos of leno fabrics and step-by-step instructions, along with seven beautiful projects, help weavers learn bead leno and many other techniques and structures like leno pick-up and Tarascan lace. This is a one-of-a-kind resource for anyone who wants to learn to create this versatile weaving structure or further refine their leno skills.
