Dudes. I love weaving. Not the least of which is because it’s freaking fast.
I wove this scarf on an Ashford rigid heddle loom, 24″ width, with a 10dpi reed. I didn’t do the total width of the loom, a bit less on both ends, so it’s 18″ across and about six feet long including the fringe. About 220 ends total (do people want this kind of info with weaving projects? hmm).
Fleece Artist Cashlana (90% merino, 10% cashmere, 400m/100g) means this baby is sooooooft. ETA: oops, I forgot to say that this project took 2 skeins!
It’s a pretty airy, drapey fabric, but darn warm too. Perfect for the weird inbetween weather we’ve been having (but I’m not complaining because I prefer the cooler temps – yesterday was like 27 C and it was tooooo hot!).
Did I mention I love it? Mmmmmm.
I think there’s lots more weaving in my future. I’m considering getting maybe a second heddle kit for more patterning, and maybe a finer reed too. Would there be any interest if I made a few similar scarves and wraps to sell?
P.S. I made the Doane Paper blog! I love their paper, seriously. You should go buy some. (And if the Doane paper people want to thank me by sending me more paper, I’ll graciously accept, hee!)
