I ordered large cones of aqua marine, black, blue ming, mineral green, natural, navy, pompeii and taupe. My photo just doesn’t do it justice!
As a reward to myself for using up all the hand dyed cotton, I’ve put on a 3 scarf warp in tencel. My plan is to weave three variations of my original Echo weave that I did back in 2009. There are a few things that make a weave Echo Weave work:
*alternating warp colours - two or more
*high sett density
*split complementary colour scheme
*no more than a 3 thread float
I’ve deviated yet again from a true Echo Weave by treadling this scarf point twill as you can clearly see on the selvedge.
The scarf reads differently on each side, one side is dark blue and the other seems to be washed denim, which makes sense due to the similarity of the blue and green warp threads.
The surprising thing is that there is also a taupe colour in the iridescence on the light side. On the dark side I swear I see khaki! Everything about this weave structure is amazing!
This is such a pretty scarf that I’ve decided it will be mine, mine, mine! I do love to wear what we call the ‘Canadian Tuxedo’ a denim jacket with jeans…..and this will jazz mine up considerably. OK, I really don't wear two denims exactly the same colour!
