Kit - Weaving - Limited Edition "Jin Silk" Scarf by Bonnie Inouye

Price: $174.95

LIMITED EDITION 8- or 16-shaft "Jin Silk" Scarf Kit as featured in Handwoven Loom Theory: 8 and over-8 shaft Scarf Collection.

Bonnie Inouye designed a gorgeous scarf in Turned Taquete weave structure...you can weave it with either 8 or 16 shafts.  There are many color blends occurring as there are THREE colors in the warp. Once warped, it's an easy one-shuttle weave.  

So many color choices...we had to weave the 8-shaft and 16-shaft versions in different color combination, giving you visuals of TWO color options.  And while both color options are wonderfully iridescent, Option #1 was especially amazing!

We are so in love with this scarf, we've extended the warp length to 5.5 yards so you can weave two scarves--one for yourself and one for a gift for someone special.  You can duplicate the treadling or change it to create two unique scarves. 

The warp is THREE colors of Kiku (20/2) silk yarn--our most popular--and the weft is Taiyo (30/2).

Your Limited Edition 8-or-more-shafts,100% Silk "Jin Silk" Scarf kit  makes TWO scarves (each scarf is approx 10" wide and 72" long plus 1" double weave hem on each end), and includes:

OPTION #1 (model dressed in white):
