//sari silk scarf

sari silk scarf

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.
