Breaking out with YELLOW!
I was struck by the beauty and colours in our frangipanis and thought this could be captured in a scarf with a yellow and grey random warp. I used a mix of tussah silk, spun silk, wool and cotton. As the warp was only 7 metres long I didn’t have any problems with tension at all, although I did cut off the first scarf and re connect for the second. This always helps with any lurking tension problems.
I wound a selection of colour mixes for the warp and interspersed a lovely Dairing yarn from Avril. I got this when I was in Melbourne in November. Unfortunately I was sick when I was there so couldn’t absorb the wonderful Dairing shop as much as I could have. For the neck wrapping segment of the scarf I used a wool/lycra singles which shrank up softly and differently from the rest of the scarf.
