We were inspired by a motif that looked like the eye on a peacock feather. We paired it with appropriate peacock colors in shimmering, supple 5/2 Bamboo. This yarn is a type of rayon made from bamboo fiber so it has all the qualities that you want in a stole: it is soft, with great drape, rich color, and a nice sheen. It measures 19" x 87". It can be hand washed, dried flat, and ironed when damp.
You will need:
- 23" weaving width
- 8 harnesses
- 10 treadles
- 10-dent reed
- 440 heddles
- boat shuttle and three bobbins
The kit includes 5/2 Bamboo colors Mineral Green, Royal, and Dark Teal for the peacock look. If you would like these colors, simply order the kit above. If you would like to choose your own colors, please see our 5/2 Bamboo page to view the options. Then return to this page, order the kit, and tell us your three color selections in the box above.
Please note that this kit uses yarns whose cones vary in weight. Your kit price may be slightly higher or lower, depending on the weights of the cones used.
