Hi guys, I thought I would post some of my scarves which came from the past year's gathering and dyeing. The hardest part of this was creating the color palette for each scarf. I had planned my small 1 -2 ounce skeins for testing dye colors with no end project in sight. In the end I wanted to weave with the silk. This meant I submitted myself to tying on differnt warps for each scarve. Doable but sheer torture to tie on EACH scarf. Now that I know the yield I will be able to dye larger batches with a LONGER warp in mind. Here ya go, not sure why I got different sizes, detail photos will be in my projects.
