Using cotton parcel string for the spaced warp and weft and using bundles of reed as supplementary weft insertions. The weave is fairly rigid, will it retain its shape when taken off the loom?
Taking the work off the loom to find that it did retain its shape. The reed bundles are not as tight as they were when on the loom but are fairly well held.
The weave is rigid enough to stand in a circle.
By doubling the weave in half the reed bundles can be interlaced to form an enclosing net structure.
