i spent the morning pulling thread from a cloth to make room for something new. maybe a spring breeze. a cloth that is actually woven like this is called a skip dent. the density difference is engineered by skipping some the spaces in the reed, which is like a metal comb that the threads pass through to keep the spacing consistent. i like the idea of patterning with space. not all fabrics lend themselves to thread removal, this is a loosely woven linen. the thread is strong and smooth and pulls out easily.
