Do You Like Our Pashmina Pop Video ?

So ?  Did you like it ?

The loom shown is a Jacquard loom. All the threads are set up and tied to heavy weights to keep them straight and tight. Then the weaving begins.

Each time the shuttle is pushed across, the holes in the jacquard cards mean that a different selection of the stretched yarns are raised or lowered. This makes each row of the fabric individual, which builds up a pattern row by row.

The little boy in the video is my son. He is playing with a wheel which is for hand spinning the cashmere which is found in the angelweave stoles. Hand-spun cashmere is uneven, extremely soft and looks great as well.

If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to ask.
