What it is:
A sophisticated checkered wrap blending a shimmering, dark gray and matte fiber of self-striping blues.
We made the checkered pattern using a technique called supplemental weft -- which creates a secondary layer. The resulting scarf is warm, soft, and lovely.
Why we like it:
We love the rich variations of blues that slowly shift from end to end. Paired with a shimmering gray, it makes us think of a silvery sky right after a good rain.
Also, we're quite proud of weaving checks! This sort of technique requires the use of pick-up sticks on a rigid heddle loom, to create a second layer as your weave. It takes a lot of love and time, but we think the result it worth it!
Who else might like it:
Anyone who needs to wrap up in a good hug.
Made of a cotton blend, this wrap is perfect for anyone with a wool-sensitivity.
After the Rain Wrap
We wove this scarf in our home studio in East Tennessee using a rigid heddle loom. A rigid heddle loom is a traditional-style, table-top handloom.
After weaving, we hand sew the edges with a hemstitch to prevent raveling.
Finally, all scarves go through a process called wet-finishing. We soak the scarves in a gentle, eco-friendly rinse and let them air dry. This creates a stronger bond between the individual fibers by causing them to bloom and become tightly interlocked.
