Notes: 

woven on 12" ashford knitter's loom with 5-dent heddle. weft was cream lion brand wool-ease.

You really need a 5 dent heddle to weave these funfur-type yarns.  The scarf on the right was started on an 8-dent heddle, what an exercise in not-fun!

On a 5-dent, it worked out well.

The space-dyed yarn on the left (main) scarf was warped using my faux-ikat method to create the horizontal 'stripes'. Class coming up in January for that, here in Weavolution's Cyber Fiber classroom.
