Introduction to Sprang with Carol James

Sprang is one of the oldest textile techniques. Unlike in weaving, no weft is used. The warps themselves are used for the interlacement! In fact, it is classified as braiding, but still gives wonderfully wide and stretchy cloth – ideal for use in comfortable clothing that allows free motion.
