The two images below show a weaving that I was working on a few years ago. In this weaving, I am adding details by weaving in different threads to create interest in the overall cloth. Once this weaving was done, it has been cut up and stitched to felt artwork and a 3D project.
In the weaving below, I used a raw silk in the warp and bamboo in the weft. I warped it 2" apart and added the weft in sections as wide as the warp and also 2" apart. I love the contrast of the reflective qualities of the bamboo against the raw silk.
This is a full shot of the weaving, which is approximately 12' long and 19" wide.
