Vivid Handwoven Scarf
A vivid handwoven scarf made from roving I purchased from Sassy Bee Fibers at the local Fiber Fest.
For this project, I decided to simpy ply the two singles together instead of using the Navajo plying process. This gave me more yardage so I had plenty of yarn for the scarf and enough left over to make another piece.
I used my antique castle style wheel to spin my Polworth after splitting the braid in half. Once completely spun, I used my Vespera espinner to ply the two singles together.
When deciding which yarn to use to warp the loom, I looked through my yarn inventory to see what I had that would give the scarf the look I wanted while still maintaining the stability needed to provide for proper tension on the loom. I decided to use some Polyester yarn that I had purchased a couple of years ago without any project in mind. The yarn used is white with a grey thread plyed into it.
To finish this scarf, I decided to keep the fringe a bit longer than I typically like and hemstitch each end.
This scarf is available for purchase in my Etsy shop, CreativeEndeavorsKS.
