I Feel a Scarf Coming On.. The Sequel

Remember the sari silk yarn that got ruled out for the first scarf?
I didn't want it to feel neglected, so it is featured in the next scarf , paired with some of that mauve bamboo. Click on the photo to enlarge for a closer look.

This time the solid color forms thicker stripes surrounding the variegated yarn. This makes a sort of dotted pattern rather than an all over pebbled one. I'm happy with this one, too, and hope it finds a good home and a happy neck.
I will tell you that this particular skein of sari silk yarn had lots of long threads sticking out, which wreaked havoc with the weaving process and slowed me down to a crawl. Yet, I can't fault it for this. I knew it's nature before I started. It's made from shredded silk fabric re-spun into yarn. It's recycled and fabulous and still my favorite yarn.

  1. I really like how you can see the luster of the yarn when you make the picture bigger! I have seen that yarn - although I haven't splurged yet. I should treat myself to some soon!
