Silk ribbons scarf

Silk Handwoven Scarf.

Silk Handwoven Scarf.

On the loom is a silk 20/2, fancy twill weave scarf. The silk yarn was purchased at the Convergence conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico from “Red Fish Dye Works”. Their booth is just eye candy, with all the beautiful colors that they dye themselves. The scarf uses a variegated yarn as well as a solid colored yarn. the colors in the variegated yarns are softened by using a light colored weft versus a dark color, which would tend to make the colors pop. The stripes of variegated yarn in the scarf remind me of ribbons. I’ve put severally rows of “jump yarn” in the weft near the ends of the scarf. I’m hoping for these areas to collapse slightly giving a shirring or ruffle effect to the scarf. In a later post I will show want happens.
