Scarves that Go Bump Kit

$69.00

This kit contains enough yarn to weave 2 delightfully textured scarves (approximately 8” x 59” after washing).  The combination of merino wool and mercerized cotton yarns in both warp and weft produce a fabric that has a bumpy 3-dimensional texture.  These scarves look fabulous with a braided or twisted fringe edge, and adding a beaded edge can make these scarves twinkle!  These scarves should be just the beginning of your love affair with things that go bump in the night!

Listen to the Loon! Difficulty level for this kit is Intermediate to Advanced (Two fish). This is a Four or Eight harness kit.

Superfine merino wool combines with our own Tubular Spectrum™ Mercerized cotton yarn to create these wonderful, deflected double weave scarves.  The wool shrinks more than the cotton and creates a bumpy fabric.

Kit contains enough yarn for 2 long scarves.  Finished scarves are approximately 8” x 59” after washing.

Original design by Madelyn Van der Hoogt.  For full project description, see Handwoven January/February 2002 page 52-54
