Kete blanket

The structure is double layer double two tie unit weave which doesn't sound nearly as romantic as Kete.  The Maori use this same weave in their flax kete (kits).

        8 ply wool warp, mohair weft, sett - 9 tpi


  1. Season's greetings.
    Beautiful Kete; beautiful weaving.
    However, I cannot find any reference to this interesting weave structure in my (limited) weave book library; can you suggest a reference.

  2. I've just posted a post about double two tie unit weave which I hope goes a small way to explaining it and doesn't leave you too confused.
