A friend challenged me to produce a tablet woven band that would iridesce. I told her it couldn't be done. She begged me just to try, so I did. You know what? I couldn't do it. Card weaving is a warped face weave for goodness sake!! Iridescence happens at the intersection of warp and weft. No weft showing, no color changing cloth. I did give it a try however. Brocade, diagonals, highly contrasting colors, nothing seemed to work. I think the only way this would work would be to have a warp spreader, and have the weft visible between the cards.
