Kit - Rigid Heddle Limited Edition "Evening Reflections" Silk Scarf Kit

Price: $59.95 - $74.94

LIMITED EDITION Rigid Heddle "Evening Reflections" Silk Scarf Weaving Kit  (uses 10 dent heddle)

As always, Peg MacMorris creatively used our silk yarns in amazing ways and she created a beautifully textured silk scarf!

This project is the COVER SCARF (yay, we're so excited!) of Little Looms magazine, Spring 2023 issue.  Inside the magazine, you'll find Evening Reflections on page 80 (project photos) and page 86 (project instructions).

Recycled Silk Yarn
The silk scarf's texture comes from our Recycled Silk Yarn, which is spun by Village Artisans in India.  Our Recycled Silk Yarn is made from "never-used" silk, but it is called "recycled silk" because the Artisans use silk weaving thrums and other ends of silk skeins that would otherwise be discarded. 

Each skeins of Recycled Silk is a unique blend of colors.  Some skeins include every color of the rainbow; some are predominately one color family.  I've through our entire stock of Recycled Silk Yarn in our warehouse (about 100 lbs!) and every skein is predominately in the reds-magentas color family.

The Recycled Silk Yarn in your kit will be different, but similar to, the ones in the center of the turquoise yarns photo (left) and the Magenta yarns photo (right)

To help you get started quickly, we have created a kit for you--you can purchase the "yarn only" (no instructions included) or you can purchase the yarn with the Little Looms Spring 2023 issue, which includes the threading plan and instructions. You'll see these choices in the drop down box when you order.

We love what Peg created so much, that we have already dyed a second color scheme--Viva Magenta.  Viva Magenta is the 2023 Pantone Color of the Year--wear it fashionably!  You can see both color options in the photos to the left.  Select your color option in the drop down box.

Your Limited Edition "Evening Reflections" Silk Scarf Kit makes a lovely 100% silk scarf using our luscious, natural and hand-dyed 100% silk bombyx yarns and multi-color textured Recycled Silk yarn.

***The yarn for the weaving kit is designed for using a rigid heddle loom. The advantage of RH over a mulit-shaft loom is there is very little loom waste.  If you want to weaving on your multi-shaft loom, call us as you'll more silk for your warp (additional cost).  We can calculate it for you.

Finished size (after wet finishing) is 7" wide by 66", plus 4" twisted fringe.

And, as a limited edition kit, once gone, these silk kits are retired forever!
