Paper and Linen

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.
