This shawl (or if you want ... table runner) is just lovely. The warp is a lovely undyed cotton/tencel, with the weft of cotton/tencel, indigo dyed raw silk, recycled sari silk yarn and tencel in the design. It’s 17 x76 w 5 inch fringe. The tencel/cotton yarn has a bit of sheen (not quite as shiny as plain tencel) and has a nice handle.
It can also serve as a runner.
I have enough warp for another two.
I love changing things up!
This was a slow moving process. Free style
I initially hand washed it and then tossed into the dryer. It behaved well and I feel it could be machine washed & dried. I just say hand wash on the care label if you’re worried.
I took the images in natural light to best capture the color and tried to show it true.
Weaving is my happy place. This isn’t an easy process. I spend a lot of time pondering the patterns I want to weave and then I need to do the work of winding all the yarn into a warp and placing it onto the loom. Each piece of yarn is threaded through a reed and then the heddles. After all that, I wind the yarn on and barring no mistakes, I can then begin weaving. Many hours go into the process of weaving. Weaving is truly a labor of love.
