Shadow weave can give the impression of movement without creating long floats in the fabric. In this shawl, inspired by the river that runs through Lawrence, we've used shadow weave to evoke the swirls and ripples of water. The yarns are hand-dyed Zig Zag, a textured rayon, and Rayon Chenille. The rayon gives heft and drape to the shawl, which is long enough to really wrap up in, at 14.5" x 80". It can be hand washed and dried flat, with a brief fluff in the dryer.
You will need:
- 18.25” weaving width
- 4 harnesses
- 10 dent reed
- 181 heddles
- two boat shuttles and bobbins
Our scarf is woven using Zig Zag in color Indian Camp and Rayon Chenille in Black. If you'd like the same colors, simply order the kit above. If you would like to select different colors, please see our Zig Zag and Rayon Chenille pages to see the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and note which one color of each you'd like in the box above. For the design to show, you need a lot of contrast between your two yarns.
