After ogling all the gorgeous Chanel fabrics (from Maison Lesage) on Pinterest, I thoughtfully created my warp and chose beads, buttons, silk ribbons, cotton lace and hand spun wool yarn for the weft, it took me almost a week to weave this mixed media scarf (modeled by my good friend, SewTara). I have another warp waiting it’s turn.
Swinging in the completely opposite direction, I chose to weave a classic pattern, herringbone, with hits of contrasting colour.
This is a lighter, spring scarf from 100% cotton.
Needing some vibrancy, I warped the loom yet again with bright gem tone hand spun wool yarns.
I barely got it off the loom and it sold immediately when posted on Facebook!
Currently on my loom is more herringbone. The yarn was spun from Canadian Shetland (black), Est de Laine & Polypay (white). My plan is to felt the fabric and make a bag, I have 3 yards warped so lots of fabric for straps as well.
