Wedding Bouquet project: selecting a weft, part 2

Part 1

Now let’s have a look at the intense and dark weft, like dark purple, and compare it to a variegated weft, where I used yellow, turquoise, fuchsia, magenta and purple.

Dark purple is thick bourette silk and the variegated weft is thin spun Mulberry silk.  It looks to me that dark weft allows for perfect frame of the multicolour polyphony of the warp; both plain weave and hearts look nice.  Variegation adds another level of eye candy, and I feel lucky that I don’t have to choose between those too as I like them both.
