Just My Yarn and RedFish DyeWorks
New project this week.
Yesterday I laid out the 3 skeins of yarn I purchased from Just My Yarn www.JustOurYarn.com and looked at them off and on all morning. In the afternoon I started adding RedFish yarns to fill in the warp. I decided I wanted a lot of color in stripes and a sheer fabric.
This is what I have come up with so far. The pink on the left is a hand-spun silk I had RedFish dye a light pink. Because it is hand-spun the color is very streaky, which I love. The 6 little skeins are RedFish 60/2 100% silk in stock colors. The 2 skeins across the top are RedFish 20/2 silk in stock colors. The 3 skeins on the right are Just Our Yarn. The one to the left is tencel, the middle is 30/2 tencel and the right hand side is Rayon. I might add more colors later, I'll have to wait and see
I will be using my Schacht floor loom which has 2 inch sections. I will use the AVL Warping Reel as I think I will make each section different.
May haps I best decide what this rectangle will turn into and figure how much warp I need. This is always a great idea! Back to the drawing board.
