New video link of collapse weave! Pleated, crinkled and specially-textured fabics are all possible with the exciting technique of collapse weave, promoted in the wonderful book for hand-weavers, Magical Materials by Danish master weaver Lotte Dalgaard as well as in the the publication Collapse Weave by Anne Field.
Here you can follow a video link to a video on YouTube showing Spanish-based weaver Anna Champeney, pupil of Lotte Dalgaard, demonstrating the technique and yarns used, to show you the kind of textiles that are possible. In the video clip Anna uses supertwisted wool yarn available from Handweavers´ Studio and the Danish Yarn Purchasing Association, in conjunction with 12/2nm linen as warp and an incredibly fine 100/1nm line (100,000m/k) as weft. A limited stock of this unusually fine linen weaving yarn is currently available directly from Anna Champeney textile studio (26,50€ for approx. 260g).

Many thanks to Diana and James Jackson who who visited the Textile Studio from the UK and recorded this impromptu video – in just one take – of Anna at work in her studio and uploaded the video to Youtube
