Here’s the pictorial view of a recent custom order, finished about ten days ago ~
These plus several other photos, all from Pinterest, were sent to me as a start on color selection for a nine-foot-long shimmery scarf for a friend who moved from Whidbey Island to Virginia several years ago.
I selected a slightly textured bamboo/hemp yarn for this project, calculated how much I’d need for the nine-footer plus three roughly six-footers, sent the photos to The Drop Spindle to inspire a custom-dyeing process in keeping with the colors in the photos. Here are the results — two balls of hand-dyed bamboo/hemp, and a commercial bamboo in a soft deep blue ~
#1, woven with burnt orange tencel ~
In a few days, I’ll be sending off the extra-long one to Judy, who — now that the weather is cooling down in Virginia — will be able to wrap and drape it in myriad ways to accentuate her lovely face. The others are available for purchase.
