New scarf

This  project was planned to show some ideas of the different effects that can be created on a very simple loom. The knitter's loom (rigid heddle) was warped up using several varied yarns of different fibre type, colour and texture. Some wool, linen, cotton, acrylic and mixed fibres with a linen weft. So long as care is taken with tensioning whilst beaming the warp, there are no particular problems on a short warp length, although this might become a problem on a longer piece. This was also an experiment with different colours for me-quite a change from my usual palette!
