I weave... occasionally, and it's more a dabbling hobby than something I make any claims to expertise. I can direct warp a rigid heddle pretty speedily, and can make nice plain cloth with neat selvedges, but that's my limit.
Others however, can make things like this.
The warp (the long vertical lengths) is a commercial yarn, and the weft (the shorter horizontal lengths) is some of my hand dyed BFL/Camel that the weaver bought at last years Wonderwool. The colour, unless I'm very much mistaken is one of my rainbows, the ones where I place the colours at random in short sections so you get shifting shades like this, rather than blocks of colour that repeat on a regular pattern. Seeing this makes me want to head to the caravan and dye some more rainbows!
The weaver is the lovely Tracy Miles, together with her Dad she makes Great Wheels. Which is another thing I would love to own, along with a loom that lets me make scarves like this.
I'm back at Wonderwool again this year (in the same stand location), preparations are in their final stages, I've got a few more dyeing days left, but the piles of stock are looking very lovely all parcelled up safely waiting for their big day out!
