Soy Silk Scarf in Huck Lace, by Judy Bool

This scarf is woven on 8 shafts at an epi 24. Soy Silk is made from tofu manufacturing waste. I find it beautiful to weave. Weaving a huck lace draft, I used a light, firm, single beat. Allowance was made for shrinkage. Once the fabric is off the loom and gently washed, the fibres ''collapse'' into lovely soft shapes. The Laces (Huck and Swedish) are my favourite weaves. Old-fashioned and romantic.

This scarf was exhibited in a Small Scarf Exhibition on the Internet.
