Explore the best of fiber combinations with the Fall 2024 issue of Easy Weaving with Little Looms. From projects woven out of beautiful blends to cloth that combines yarn types for spectacular effects, this issue is all about how weavers mix and match fibers.

Further your fiber education with the Fiber 101 article, and then take a deep dive into the world of Angora rabbits. Frequent Little Looms designer and Angora rabbit breeder Greta Holmstrom shares what makes these rabbits so special—and why their fiber is usually blended. One of the best ways to understand yarn is to make it yourself, so we’ve got an article by Debbie Held on how her experience as a handspinner has made her a better weaver—even when using store bought yarn. Also, in this issue, learn how easy it can be to design and weave yardage for your own no-sew vest from Judith Shangold and get the details on how to use pick and pick and wavy lines in tapestries in the last installment of Tapestry Weaving.

The projects offer hands-on lessons for using blends and combining fibers. In this issue, you’ll find some twilight inspired towels woven in cottolin, a set of elegant baskets woven out of a paper-linen blend, a runner that mixes cottons with a thick wool for a hint of differential shrinkage, and two inkle-woven bracelets that show how adding a bit of rayon to cottolin can really up the shine.

Weavers of all skill levels are sure to love these fiber duos (and trios!). Sometimes blends are just better.
