M’s & O’s
A wool scarf woven using fine 20/2 Swedish wool in a simple two block, 4 shaft pattern. The warp was light grey, the weft dark grey. It was sett at 24 epi and woven as a balanced weave. The fabric tracked quite a bit, which was a surprise given the fairly tight twist of this yarn, but I like the added dimension. The edges were threaded for a plain weave border and the ends woven with an inch of plain weave (not a true plain weave, more like a half basket). This is to avoide the long floats on the edges and forms a nice frame around the whole. To get a good photo of the pattern and tracking I had to hang it in a window. I can see nice light window coverings using this structure in a fine linen.
