I wanted to try this multi warp scarf for the recycled art show that we featured at VIVA Gallery recently. One of the warp threads is a recycled silk sari, handspun yarn from Nepal, beautiful and unpredictable, and probably not my wisest choice for a warp thread. In all its lovely loosely spun hairiness it did a lttle too much bonding with its neighbors. Still, sometimes these things just must be done… that’s not to say that I will be doing it again. However I loved the multiwarp concept; and lord knows there are too many novelty yarns floating around in my baskets, to not give this another try in a different colorway. Just got to quit listening to the weeds growing in my gardens.
I explore weaving, spinning, dyeing, torchworked beads, and pretty much whatever inspires me next. I live in a log cabin surrounded by the beautiful rolling hills of western Wisconsin. This is constant inspiration for the colors that show up in my weaving and yarns.
