Last year I purchased a linen-rayon blend yarn in several earth tone colors. They've been sitting on my shelf talking to me for quite some time. Several weeks ago I impulsively warped enough yarn for a wide scarf. I wove it in a loose plain weave. On the loom it looked a bit like the old burlap feed sacks we used to get on the farm when I was kid. That was a bit concerning! I wasn't feeling too optimistic about the outcome.

But once off the loom and washed and dryed, I fell in love! This fabric is light enough to wear in the summer. It has a nice enough drape to not be too bunchy at the neck when wrapped around as a scarf. I think it will probably soften with wear and washings. I can't wait to get the chenille warp off my loom so I can do more projects with this yarn. I'm thinking lace weave patterns will be the next experiment.


  1. I would love to come to your studio sometime and see how you weave and put everything together! I'm just amazed at the beautiful work you produce! Oh, my talented friend!

  2. Thanks for the compliment.Oh please do come to my studio! I'd love to have you. I might even put you to work being creative too!
