My most recent chenille handwovens
Here's a blanket and scarf that I wove recently. The scarf is 1450 ypp black rayon chenille. I added supplemental warp of ladder ribbon in bright jewel tones, with the chenille in plain weave. I braided the fringe since I often have trouble with twisting. Adding the ribbon is simple and inexpensive, but people really love it.
The blanket is a simple plain weave plaid of navy blue and white. I think they're both around 1450 or 1300 ypp, but theyre unlabeled mill ends so I'm not sure. The white feels thicker, though, and I had trouble with the shed in the white areas. I had to use the shuttle to beat against the warp on the open sheds to open it up at the fell line. So it was slow going, but it turned out nice. I entered it in a arts & crafts competition and won 3rd place! I was very pleased since it's the first competition I've entered.
Both were sleyed at 16 epi.
