The navy and green scarf is completed, off the loom and finished. I love the crispness of the scarf, but it is definitely scratchy and straw-like. It will work as a scarf if it is tucked under a jacket lapel, but not something you would want next to your skin. The yarn floats are not noticeable, and plain weave won out overall in the weaving. I like the texture of the paper/cotton yarn and I love the way the yarn scarf scrunches like linen. I do hope that it will soften up over time.
Another scarf off the loom really is linen. It is woven from a fine 40/2 linen, from Silk City Linen, in a subtle bird’s eye twill threading. I really like the transparent quality of the weaving, and again, hope that it will soften up with repeated washing and wearing. It feels very elegant.
