New Year in New York!
A roll of rayon chenille plaid scarf warp fresh off the loom. After the roll is laundered, it's cut and sewn into several scarves. This one will brighten up a dark winter day!
Three different weaves in three different fibers- merino/tencel, alpaca, and bamboo.
We started our new year designing samples for the New York Gift show which opened the end of January. Jeri, Morgan, and I wove warp after warp, changing fills for each new colorway, experimenting with a new merino/tencel yarn, and playing with pattern formats and sizes. It was a challenge to produce several new scarf lines in a month. Here's one collection at the show featuring parts of 3 different collections all in bamboo fiber.
