What is the difference between a herringbone weave and a diamond weave?
Diamond weave and herringbone weave may seem very similar, and they are. Herringbone is half a diamond. The herringbone weave is based on a diagonal offset, which then returns. However, in the case of a diamond, after the pattern splits, it returns again, creating a pattern closed on both sides.

Handwoven wool - what does it mean and how it is done?
Handwoven wool is a special type of fabric, which is made by hand. It is a very labor-intensive process, so it's not surprising that it costs more than machine-made fabrics. In order to understand the difference between handwoven wool and machine-made garments, you need to know how this type of fabric is made.
Handwoven fabrics are made from single threads that have been twisted together to form a yarn. The yarns are then woven into cloth on a loom or frame. The weaving can be done with many different methods. The different types of weaves affect the appearance of the final product quite drastically.
The manual weaving process also means that there may be weaving errors when making them. What are they about? Usually it's a mistake in the thread, which may result in a slight shift in the pattern. From a distance, it is imperceptible, so it is not a problem when sewing clothes, because even when in contact with another person, there is little chance that he will notice such a mistake.
