Clasped weft is a wonderful hand-controlled technique for plain weave that can give you crisp geometric designs or graceful organic curves--it is up to you as you weave it. In Deb Essen's Anthology infinity scarf, four different designs are given. She also describes in detail the technique so once you complete your scarf, you will be ready to design your own project using clasped weft. The yarns used are beautiful--a warp of viscose bamboo sett at 10 epi and a weft of Winter Silk's Merino wool/silk blend. They have a silky feel and drape beautifully in a scarf. Once the fabric is woven, the ends are sewn together to create an infinity scarf. This project was designed to be woven on a rigid heddle loom, but the warp is already measured, so you can thread it through the heddle, tie it onto you apron bar, and start weaving. The kit makes one scarf with finished dimensions of 8" x 55" around. It can be hand washed and dried flat.
You will need:
- 9" weaving width
- rigid heddle loom with a 10 dent heddle
- 1 flat shuttle
- needle and thread for hemming and joining
