There is such a fine line between the perfect collapse weave scarf….. and a lump, or rock.
This started out as a Soari-ish scarf. Mixing raw silk and wools in the warp… then crossing them with various wools in the weft. I was hoping for an interesting look….. and with a bit more brightness than the last things I wove.
But I left it in the machine a ‘moment’ too long….. I should learn that when I check things and they say…. just another minute or two, it’s time to take them out! OR do the whole collapse wash in the sink instead of the washing machine….. that way my eye is on the project the entire time.
I still love the colors…. they make me happy!
And I did make a twill scarf. Funny, it feels limp compared to the ‘collapse weave’ one!
Raw silk warp and alpaca weft….. all natural dyes, as is the collapse weave one.
Now….. to drive over to Sedona to pick up my organic turkey. Then home again to put another warp on the loom.
I wish that I hadn’t offered to work part day tomorrow (to make up for the time lost by the store being closed on Thursday)…… I would love to stay home and weave!
