Woven Scarves

I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of seeing fiber get transformed into something that is not only beautiful, but also useful. Virginia continues to explore the various ways of doing that. Over the last couple of weeks, she has worked on a couple of simple, but elegant scarves. These are both woven on her rigid heddle loom – such a simple machine, but the possibilities for creation (even with just a basic weave) are seemingly boundless. In the case of these two recent projects, different yarns were used for both the weft and the warp, the last one using some of my handspun yarn.

  1. The lure of weaving is growing ever stronger in me…..I luv the look of woven handspun. Pure luxury…especially with your gorgeous handspun Dan!

  2. Beautiful scarves!! Weaving takes way more patience than I have..

  3. Wow, those are so beautiful! The colours of the blue scarf are so perfect and subtle, and the texture in the second makes it look so warm and cosy. I don’t think I’ve ever seen woven handspun before but it’s gorgeous and the fact that both of you were involved in the creative process makes it all the more special.

  4. wow those are gorgeous. makes me want to get my defunct loom out.

  5. Those crisp selvedge edges just make me want to weep – lovely.
