First Project Completed

In only one day I was able to warp, weave, and cut the first scarf off the new Ashford Sample-It loom.

Loving the ASIL

I wet finished it and twisted the fringes the next day.

Love the colours!

Although the yarn has the thick and thin look of handspun it's actually acrylic, and true to the nature of acrylic yarns it resisted blocking and wet setting of the weave structure.

Aran yarn woven with the 5dpi heddle

So I intentionally "killed" the acrylic with steam, improving the drape of the yarn immensely.

Scarf Close Up

The yarn is "Bernat Mosaic" sett at 5epi. It required less than one 100g ball for a scarf that measures 55" x 6.25" not including the fringe.
