On the loom today........

This is the last painted warp I had hanging in the studio - it's been hanging there for a reason, I haven't been thrilled with the colors. I almost hung it back out of sight but decided to put it on the loom. I've had a few warps like this in the past and once I wove them I loved the resulting scarves.......jury still out on this one. The warp is tencel, the weft is a golden bamboo. The second scarf on the warp I'll use a dusty rose bamboo, I sampled at the beginning of the warp with several colors and like the dusty rose. Since I hadn't tired of this undulating twill pattern from the last scarf I decided to use it for this one too.  Can't wait for it to warm up so I can get outside to dye more warps. I can do the dyeing in the garage in bad weather but I like the natural light much better so I dye enough during the summer to weave on all year. I don't have a plan as I wind warps - I wind enough for scarves but sometimes end up mixing them with solid colors on the loom to make shawls or yardage.


  1. It sure looks pretty in the picture! Love the way the pattern looks in it.

  2. I love the colors and the pattern kind of looks like flames


I love your comments - thank you!
