DeColores Scarf

This scarf was woven from a warp which reflects a riot of color and texture.  I went through my stash and there are few repeats in this warp.  (For larger photos just click on photos below.)

 

 
Here’s a tip for cutting scarf fringe.  (Note that the fringe had first been tied in overhand knots close to the weaving.)  I use a cutting board and a rotary cutter.  I’ve both cut fringe before the fabric was fulled and after.  Probably better after fulled and dryed but as I say, I’ve done it both ways.

    Gail:
    Thank you! The weft? It’s Lion Boucle an Acrylic (79%), Mohair (20%) and Nylon (1%) blend. I found it at Big Lots at a $1 per skein. I balled the yarn so I no longer have the color way info. I’ve also seen it at Michael’s.
