Detailed Description

Luxury yarns don't need a complicated pattern. This simple, yet elegant, shawl highlights the yarn as much as the design. The warp is Heritage, a wool-nylon blend, sett at 15 epi and woven in twill and reverse twill. The weft is the star of the show: Fino mini skeins, made by Manos del Uruguay. The yarn is a blend of 70% extra-fine Merino wool and 30% Tussah silk, which is hand-dyed in small batches for subtle color variations. These mini skeins come pre-packed in groups of five coordinated colors. All you have to do is pick the order of the colors in your weft and weave until each mini skein is done. The kit makes one shawl with finished dimensions of 12" x 70". It can be hand washed and air dried.

You will need:

  • 15" weaving width
  • 4 harnesses
  • 10- or 15-dent reed
  • 220 heddles
  • boat shuttle and bobbin

We wove colorway Amber Meadow for our sample shawl. We also created other combinations as well.

If you would like to choose your own custom color combination, please see our Fino packs and Heritage pages to see the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and tell us your color selections in the box above.
