A TREATISE ON DESIGNING AND WEAVING PLAIN AND FANCY WOOLEN CLOTHS. This treatise contains more than one hundred weaves of the lastest and the most staple and popular styles, from a two-harness plain weave up to a forty-eight harness fancy weave, accompanied by rules and calculations. Together with more than thirty illustrated pick-outs or diagrams. Also provides directions as to the manner of reducing large and complicated designs to their lowest terms, with the cross-drawing-in-drafts for the same rules for picking out samples, and other rules and tables of importance to manufacturers. This work is more especially calculated for those who are familiar with the running of looms, and have little understanding of weaves and petterns, but without much knowledge of the different classes of weaves and their construction, or of their combinations. The book was originally published in 1878. Many of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
