Hand Painted Warp Scarf

To my delight, I’ve started my first project on Julia, the little red loom from Glimakra, a hand painted warp rayon scarf, blues and greens with black stripes. I played around with a twill but the black weft became too dominating and took away from the look of the painted warp so I’m weaving the entire scarf in a simple tabby. The light weft is temporary…scrap woven to even the warp which will be discarded and the exposed warp will become the scarf fringe. You’ll notice the shuttle, it is a Schacht Spindle Company end shuttle. I LOVE IT! It’s small and advances evenly making it easy to maintain tension. And, I really like the overhead beater on the Julia. It can be moved forward and back (no screws or bolts anchoring it to the loom) which allows you to weave more area before advancing the warp. Nice!

    I like how the light weft looks though on this project. It really makes it interesting. I can’t wait to see it finished though. Good luck!
