Notes: 

I eyeballed a cone of black tencel with a project in mind. You would think that I would weigh it to try to figure out if I had enough for the project…..well….I didn’t. When I came up 30 ends short, I thought for sure that I would have to get creative:) So…I figured that I had enough for one repeat of this pattern! Yesssss!

I wove three.  One red, one purple, one gold

Notes: 

This is part of my exploration of modern tweeds.  It is both light weight and supple.  Made from 5 different yarns, a cotton flake, a heather 8/2 wool. a very fine varigated wool, a turquoise fine worsted (spinning, not size) wool, and polyester "FunFur".  The scarf is a generous 13" by 90" with 7" of twisted fringe on each end.  The Fun Fur gives a subtle hairy appearance to the cloth.  The hair was buried during the weaving and is slowly working it way out; I expect the fuzzy to continue to develop. The sewn tam is lined and adorned with a ribbon cockade and button.  For sunrise services even if it snows.
