By Susan Wilson. Crackle was introduced to American weavers in the early 20th century. It has gone in and out of favor but Susan Wilson makes the case that crackle deserves to be in your tool kit. Its greatest strength is that the same threading can be treadled in a variety of ways to create very different looking fabrics. From completely weft-faced to styles that look like classic summer and winter to polychrome combinations that show of gradated color, crackle can create a multitude of looks. And you don't have to have a lot of harnesses--four can do an amazing number of things in crackle! Color photos of both finished pieces and swatches illustrate the text and many drafts are provided to get you started.
