Devore

It is the removal of cellulose fiber in a composite blend of fibers using a  fiber etch. The fiber that is “burned-out” (devoured) may be linen, bamboo, hemp, cotton, rayon, tencel and viscose (plant fiber) leaving behind wool or silk.

This is another way to be artistic in your knitting or weaving. It is an element of creativity you may not be able to achieve with needles or a loom.

Cutwork is sometimes done using this method.
