Silk Finnish Weave Scarf

20130828-085520.jpg
The first scarf has been cut off the loom. When I started weaving I was not happy with the weft yarn I had chosen after weaving a couple of inches. The reddish plum-colored silk yarn used for the weft, looked more like a burgundy from the interaction with the blue silk warp. I found this color combination dowdy. So I choose to remove the weaving by carefully cutting out the weft yarn. After looking through my stash of silk yarns, I choose to use two, the 20/2 silk, reddish plum yarn I had just removed, with a 60/2 silk, Felt green yarn. Two separate bobbins are wound each with one of these yarns. The 2 bobbins are placed in a double shuttle for weaving. When using this shuttle care needs to be taken at the selvage. At times one of the yarns feeds differently, creating a small loop. The Felt green yarn made the design pop. The second scarf will be woven with a different color combination.
