What is Crackle?

Crackle weave is a useful but not well-known weave structure.


Crackle weave is a system of small twill blocks. Traditional Crackle creates a sturdy fabric with short floats. However, many untraditional design ideas and color mixing experiments are also possible with this weave structure.


Anyone who can read a four-shaft draft and thread a loom can use A Crackle Weave Companion. This book is designed to help the person who does not know much about Crackle become more proficient in the weave, but it is also designed to be an inspiration to all weavers, Crackle and otherwise, who want to understand how the structure works.
