This week I have been working on getting my loom dressed with the warp for a winter scarf. The warp is Silk Noir and the weft is Alpaca/silk. Having never worked with Silk before for the warp, I found out very quickly that it is not as strong as the 8/2 cotton I worked with on the towels. Only 2 broken warp threads so far and that happened when I was dressing the loom. The scarf will have a 6 inch fringe on each end and the scarf itself is 7 1/2 inches wide. The pattern calls for a total woven length of 72 inches. It will be a while before this is finished.
As you can see, 12 inches so far...lots to go !
Fringe at the beginning with cardboard insert.
