Kit - Weaving - Rigid Heddle "Big Plaid" Silk Scarf
LIMITED EDITION Rigid Heddle Weaving Kit designed and woven by Peg MacMorris
Using different widths of stripes and two different silk yarns, Peg achieved an interesting color and texture effect with this “Big Plaid” silk scarf.
I love the asymmetrical arrangement of the warp stripes and the “color and weave” effect achieved in the widest stripe.
Peg used a dyed skein of Jorie II and a natural (undyed) skein of Alirio-thicker (Noil). Noil is a very economical silk with a lovely, “rustic” feel.
Peg wove the lovely scarf (right) using #33 Tiramisu. And during the design phase, Peg used #215 Eucalyptus (the light green skein setting on the scarf) and this lighter value was equally gorgeous.
We have dyed four of our favorite colors for you to choose from...if you don't see the color (pictured left) in the drop down box, it's sold out.
Your Limited Edition "Big Plaid" Silk Scarf Kit makes a beautiful scarf approximately 6.25” wide and 74 inches finished length (including fringe), and includes:
--190 yds (90g) of hand-dyed Jorie II (100% spun silk yarn, DK weight)
--170 yds (33g) Alirio-thicker (100% silk noil yarn)
And, as a limited edition kit, once gone, this scarf kit is retired forever!
