Muilticoloured Scarf in Plaited Twill, by Judy Bool

A Plaited Twill draft woven on 4 shafts at epi 24. The warp is an extremely soft merino/mohair mix. Colours in a purple/mauve/pink/gray mix. Weft is two strands of fine alpaca/silk in a peacock colour.

The multicolours have shown as subtle stripes with flecks of the peacock blue weft sparkling through.

This scarf is very soft and light.I wove it to be a detachable collar cum scarf for a yet to be completed cape. Just the thing for a cold winters day. The "Twills" are my second favourite drafts. Especially the undulating twills.

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