ABSTRACT
The article offers information on huck lace, a primary member of the loom-controlled lace-weave family. It uses an odd number of threads in each block in both threading and treadling. It is usually woven wit single shuttle using a weft with the same thickness and color as the warp. The most effective in showing contrast between warp and weft floats are natural colors and pale pastels. The sett is also more open than the usual in order to move to form lacy holes.
