It occurred to me that readers might be curious about those two scarves — fiber content, process, and the like. So here ’tis ~

The warp is a hand-dyed bombyx silk from The Drop Spindle (in California); the warp was 7.5 yards long, enough to produce three scarves each six feet long (plus approximately two inches of fringe at each end) by about ten inches wide. The first scarf above is woven with a fine hand-dyed silk noil, the second with tencel. The patterns are my own design, created using WeavePoint software. The threading is a 16-shaft point twill; the first treadling is a variation on an advancing point twill, as is the second but with a shorter repeat.

After the weaving is done, the finished scarves go home with me for washing and partial drying, then back to the studio for “detailing” — ironing, trimming of threads and fringes, and making hang-tag labels.

That’s it. Simple.
