the beat goes on

November 14, 2012

the first scarf wove up quickly

the second one is more colourful

the weft is handspun silk waste, I think it is the sweepings off the factory floor – short silk fibre and very fine tangled/ knotted silk yarn

I plyed it with Japanese reeled silk, the resulting yarn is fine and textured with a variation in shades

I’m busy spinning  silk/baby camel fibre, possibly for the next weft

    The subtle patterning in these is so satisfying. I’m sure they reward a closer look, too.

    Your scarfs are beautiful to look at, I bet they are also very soft and pleasant to wear.

      thanks Blandina, most of them are handspun silk so they are also warm – it’s getting cold here now.

    oh, the lovely warm tones, make the warp look more brown; such pretty color shifts!

      Anastasia – I love to play with colour but think It is the light (at the end of the wintery day) that makes it look brown. this is a very strong, clear blue/black
