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.

Notes: 

Here is another version of my 8H twill block design. This time I scaled the blocks back to about 2/3 the size of my previous towels in order to produce more texture. I am pleased with the results and made an effort to show the "bumps" in the finished towels by taking a few of the photos minus the flash.

This nine yard warp produced nine towels each approximately 19" x 28". They have a very pleasing hand.

Notes: 

Using Habu silk A-4, working thru sett and yield sample scarf.  I have a series of natural dyes from my valley dyed on this yarn and I want to do a series of scarves.  This scarf is a warm up to "learn the yarn" and design for it.  Sett, Drape, Color..... this particular warp is done for only one scarf using my 1 oz skeins of oak leaves, various acorns and wild madder.  This will tell me how much yarn is used in one scarf so I can design with what I have on hand!  Color challenge, I ran dyepots "without" planning for the final project so it will be a challenge to use up the colors I have done.  Here is a link to where I put the yarns up on line....
