Our scarf uses Rayon Slub for the warp, giving it a little swing. The weft is Berroco's Sox, a self-striping blend of 75% Superwash wool and 25% nylon. This yarn was developed to create the illusion of the Fair Isle technique in a knitted item, but it looks similar to ikat when woven. The scarf is plain weave, sett at 12 epi, and the pattern includes instructions for weaving it on either a rigid heddle loom or a loom with harnesses. The kit makes one scarf with finished dimensions of approximately 7" x 70". It can be hand washed and dried flat, with a short tumble in the dryer to fluff.
You will need:
- 8.5" weaving width
- rigid heddle loom or loom with 2 harnesses
- 12 dent rigid heddle or reed
- if using a loom with harnesses, 102 heddles
- 1 boat shuttle
- 1 bobbin
