Description

Through a series of soft and misty tones, our Double Weft Scarf brings to mind billowy banks of fog rolling in from the sea one early morning. Worked on Schacht Spindle Co’s little tabletop Cricket Loom, these gentle color transitions come from the simple technique of working a “double weft.” For each row of weaving you pass the main color, then a contrast color, through the same shed, creating this wonderfully heathered texture. To make a scarf that feels as good as it looks, we used our super soft and supple Season Alpaca in Heirloom White for the warp and one strand of the weft. And for the changing tones of the other weft strand, we used four colors of our Linen Quill, a rustic blend of fine highland wool, alpaca, and linen. All the yarn you need is here in our Double Weft Scarf Bundle, available in four gorgeous palettes!
