This is a narrower version (7.5" in width - 2" narrower than before) of my Kathmandu Sparkle Scarf. As you recall, I fell in love with the colors in this yarn at Hobby Lobby, and had to weave another scarf! This yarn color has now been discontinued.
But it has beautiful jewel tones, a nice shine to it, and is a soft worsted weight yarn. It has a thin thread spun into it with sequins.
I made this in plain weave, as I did the previous version. As I was threading the loom, Christopher walked in, and suggested I try a different weave structure. (Well actually, he said "are you gonna do a different design with this one?", but I knew what he meant.) I was nearly done threading, so I continued with plain weave, but I'm going to try a basic twill with variegated yarn next.
I was so happy to be able to achieve my target ppi for this project, it is a balanced weave! YAY! And it wove up so quickly, I was able to weave it in about 6 hours total.
It's beautiful. Sometimes it's hard to capture the richness of the color on camera, so trust me on that.
Technical stuff: It's 7.5" wide x 80" long, excluding a 4" fringe on each side. It contains 12% wool, so should be hand washed and laid flat to dry.
