Wedding Bouquet, a scarf loop #8

Weaving is all about making rectangular things.  At least, weaving on a rectangular framed loom.  So, among baby wraps, towels, placemats and table runners, I can also make scarves.  And here is the first scarf in the Wedding Bouquet collection, for a dear friend.  wb8-web-2-of-5

This is a plain weave, with a reeled silk as weft, and it feels and looks FAB.  Yes, all capitals.  Because it is.  🙂

The edges are hand-rolled, as I find the machine-stitching for these loop scarves on a thin silk warp a bit too rough.  Yes, it takes forever to stitch, but it is worth it.

Just look at this drape!
