Twill Scarves

 IMG_2706 Warp

I have put on a 12 yard warp of Bendigo 2 Ply -  Raffia (Bendigo Woollen Mills only do their 2 ply in 500 gram cones now) sett at 18 EPI  for some twills scarves. I have threaded a straight draw on 16 shafts with a further 4 shafts for the selvedge. You can do a lot on a straight 16!

I have woven a sample trying out some plaited twills and for the first scarf I shall use the undulating plaited twill from A Handbook of Weaves- Oelsner using the shade Denim Blue for the weft.
