Weaving

Mixed warp scarves come to life…

Yesterday, I had a chance in the afternoon to warp both the looms with mixed warp scarves. I managed to use up all my handspun laceweight merino/silk singles as weft for this scarf… and so I’ll have to go back and spin more in order to finish weaving this. So here it is for now:

Sheer, gauzy fabric

Since the weft is overspun singles, I’m hoping that when I take this off the loom and wash it, it will end up a little bit crinkly. I love the texture of this… nubby raw silks, silk boucle, handspun yarn and hand dyed yarns. It’s back to the spinning wheel for now.

But in the meantime, I’m working on this second scarf. The weft is 20/2 silk dyed in cutch and then overdyed in indigo, leaving a greenish grey colour that is so subtle and interesting. It ties all these mixed warp textures and colours together.

About 1/2 yard left to weave…

The weaving for these will be done soon and I’ll have to decide how I want to finish the fringe. Hmm.

    Ha! I have been putting off warping and dressing my loom. The fiber room is a mess. This gives me some inspiration to start cleaning – start warping – start dressing the loom. I have work to do… Pssst – I REALLY want some of that green/blue dyed silk… ;)
