AS THE BLIZZARD, SO THE SHUTTLE

 Amazing weather out there, so what’s a gal to do? Weave, of course!

This is my first Color Horoscope Weaving with Tencel warp (and recycled cashmere weft). I have done a few sample pieces wanting to see if I am able to launder in the washing machine and dry in the dryer. The samples were most promising.

 The one thing I noticed is that the tencel is slipperier than the bamboo, cotton, or wool. It behaves much more like silk than the bamboo yarns I had been using. I had several loose threads. Next time, I will pay more careful attention to my tension while dressing the loom.

 Image below I wove a sample with variegated tencel at the end  just to see what it would look like. I really love the look!

 And yes, one of my most favorite moments in weaving! Now let the finishing begin (grin)

    Looks great. I just finished weaving a scarf with Tencel and loved it. I, also, had a few loose threads.
