Lucille Crighton’s colourful line of sumptuous jackets, vests and scarves are intricately handwoven using a mixture of exciting yarns. With fibre as her palette, Lucille continues to explore new ideas.
For the 16-shaft warp faced fabrics the colours & textures are designed on a cardboard reeling. The patterns for these fabrics are designed using the computer. Then the yarn is wound onto the loom and threaded, ready for weaving.
The weft-faced fabric is designed on a 4-shaft loom, balancing colour, value, and texture while weaving and using up to 30 different yarns in one jacket.
Jacket prices range from $750 to $995 Canadian.
