Linen warp and tabby with a wool pattern weft are obvious choices for a traditional overshot table runner. The draft, however, taken from Weaving Designs by Bertha Gray Hayes: Miniature Overshot Patterns by Smayda, White, Brown, and Schelleng, is surprisingly dynamic. By using a thicker pattern weft than is conventional with our 20/2 Linen, we have also elongated the pattern, emphasizing the diagonals and creating an exciting accent for your table. The warp is sett at 24 epi.
The linen is half bleached and we've chosen Iris for our Shetland pattern weft.
