Our Moorman Technique Scarf is like loom-controlled couching. You attach the inlay yarn to one side of the fabric with a fine, almost invisible supplementary warp thread. The technique is so versatile that it works equally well for a geometric design like ours or one that is freeform and curvy. We used Rayon Slub sett at 16 epi for the main warp with fine tie-down threads of 16/2 Bamboo. The inlay yarn is Lanaloft Handpaint, a variegated wool yarn that adds dramatic variegated color to a supple background fabric. The kit makes one scarf with dimensions of about 6.75" x 69" plus fringe. It can be hand washed and dried flat.
You will need:
- 8” weaving width
- 4 harnesses
- 8-dent reed
- 192 heddles
- boat shuttle and bobbin
- 3 small flat shuttles (optional)
