Remember secret decoder rings and writing special messages for your friends? Overshot name drafts are woven “secret messages” created by assigning each letter of a phrase to a shaft on the loom. Based on the message “Yes, it’s worth it”, this 4-shaft design is the weaver’s response to “But you can buy a runner, is it really worth all the effort?” Why yes, yes it is indeed worth it. Featuring Lunatic Fringe Yarns Tubular Spectrum™ Tints & Tones mercerized cotton yarns.
This is a DJE Handwoven Kit, and it comes with all the yarn you need plus a prewound warp ready to put on your loom.READ MORE
