Inspiration shawl

This shawl was made from bamboo warp using the word Inspiration to arrange the stripes. This was purchased yarn from a shop which was closing and I only had one ball of each colour to work with so I did some twiddling. The weft is a slub, boucle grey mixed yarn in merino, alpaca and silk. It made for a variable effect. This shawl drapes wonderfully well and is quite large and warm as a wrap.  It may also look lovely as a runner on a table.

One more dyed scarf

Another hand dyed scarf on cotton dyed this week. Very enjoyable project in the hot sunshine.

Hand dyed scarf/shawl with metallic threads.

Greens and blues on a lovely cotton scarf which was hand dyed in my studio on a scarf imported from India. Note the metallic vertical yarns as well. This is soft and drapeable as a scarf or lightweight shawl.
