Scarf Samples

It was time to make another batch of scarves. The warp is fine cotton set at 30 threads per inch with equal thirds of navy, purple and alternating navy and purple in the middle. The weft is the same cotton in some scarves, or a variety of silks I had on hand. The weave structure is an interesting twill that will apply well later in both wool and cotton blankets, which I'm inspired to pursue.

Cloth samples on the loom always look rather coarse. After washing and pressing though, these scarves will soften and drape well. I'll post them later in March when they're finished.

Here are some samples from the loom of the different patterns and colour combinations.
