Rainbow wrap/shawl


I started with these 8ply merino colours from my hand dyed stash.


I warped the loom and wove using a very deep purple.


And this is how it turned out!


There are many styles to wear a wide, long shawl in.


It's lovely and warm too.


Weaving this has given me some fresh ideas on using the warp as a feature. 
I've ordered a second heddle kit for my loom, which means that I will be able to weave double the width of cloth without buying a larger loom! Exciting! I've always wanted to weave baby blankets and the new kit will allow me to do that. 
There is always something new to learn or a way to expand your skills.
Happy creating!
