Notes: 

This was done as a mobius strip: I left a lot of unwoven warp (about 18 inches) before starting to weave the scarf. After weaving about 45 inches, I undid the warp from the front beam, carefully added tension without wrapping the scarf around the beam, added a twist to the fabric, then used the un-woven warp from the start of the scarf as the weft for the final inches of the scarf. The instructions I followed are here: https://plus.google.com/photos/103025470....

A llama-themed scarf for a wish on Swap-Bot's "Wishlist" group. It is made of llama wool and the llama was embroidered on while the scarf was still on the loom. It turned out so soft!

Notes: 

An ocean-inspired scarf for a wish on Swap-Bot's "Wishlist" group. It is a mix of cotton, acrylic, and wool.

The warp is three different colours of cream/beige in three large stripes. The weft is, in order: the three colours of cream/beige (for sand), three colours of blue in order from lightest to darkest, and grey for the sky.

The colour changes are more subtle in real life than they appear in the pictures. I'm especially proud of the knotted ends on this one.

Sett:

Notes: 

A very loosely woven scarf using two different fine and slightly fluffy yarns. I don't know the fibre content; the yarns were given to me by my Aunt Sharon and I lost the labels. This one is for a Swap-Bot wish. I sewed it into a Mobius strip. To wear it, you twist it into an infinity sign and put both loops over your head.

Woven with doubled warp and weft using a 12.5 reed. Woven in two pieces with some loom shaping for the neck. There's a seam up the center of the back to join the two halves, plus I sewed the two sides together partway to leave armholes. The cloak closures are two metal clips.
