Big Plaid Scarf Kit - Rigid Heddle. Using different widths of stripes and two different silk yarns, Peg achieved an interesting color and texture effect with this â€œBig Plaidâ€ silk scarf.
I love the asymmetrical arrangement of the warp stripes and the â€œcolor and weaveâ€ effect achieved in the widest stripe.
Peg used a dyed skein of Jorie II and a natural (undyed) skein of Alirio-thicker (Noil). Noil is a very economical silk with a lovely feel.
Your Limited Edition "Big Plaid" Silk Scarf Kit makes a beautiful scarf approximately 6.25 wide and 74 inches finished length (including fringe), and includes:
--190 yds (90g) of hand-dyed Jorie II (100% spun silk yarn, DK weight)
--170 yds (33g) Alirio-thicker (100% silk noil yarn)
And, as a limited edition kit, once gone, this scarf kit is retired forever!
