John H – My silk warp IKAT scarf
Ange M – Sample from Mary Zikafoose’s class
The warp is 8/2 tencel dyed with Procion mx dyes, and the weft is a commercially dyed 16/2 cotton. I wove a straight twill.
I shifted the color by slipping the threads; one side came out looking like I wanted and the other did not!
