silk, linen & cashmere





At last I got round to my next weaving project. Its a scarf!


I'm using the same linen as before (as I got tons of it!!) and some lovely shiney slippery silk. The slightly darker band is Cashmere, its from Scotland...its lovely and soft. The linen is as rigid as straw (it gets much softer after washing) so the silk should help to make the scarf more flexible.


Its a summer scarf so I hoped I'd get nice open weaving and...thats just how it turned out so...nice one!


I hope to get it finished in the next few days so I'll show you how it turned out (maybe its not that interesting if youre not into weaving, sorry about that!!)
