Notes: 

This  is inpired by Lotte Dalgaards book, a scarf on page 44.  The sett is actually 12 epcm for the wool crepe and 8 epcm for the linen.

The copper is really delicate. I used it in both the warp and weft. In the warp I'd recommend doubling the threads and treating them as one. I also used a monofilament as a floating selvedge to protect the copper edge. And be really, really careful.

Hi Marie,
That is fantastic. You have really mastered a very difficult piece of weaving there!

So how are you going to wash it?

It's beautiful.....is it a functional scarf or a showpiece?

um both...

Washing-- I washed it in really, REALLY hot water to get the pleats to form. Apparently it stretches out and they you put it in hot water again. So I'd say I'll problably just wash it and let it dry.

Can it be both functional and a showpiece?  it's meant to be worn, not hung on the wall.
