Decided to put on a Houndstooth demo warp for the first colour and weave sample. In an interesting turn this fabric was first worn by Shepherds mostly in Scotland. It has since that time become a symbol of luxury and status, with lots of design houses over the years using it, from Dior to Steve McQueen. Here is a good link to a wee bit of history about Houndstooth. This is a four harness sample, I will do an eight harness next time, you know the spiral one.
