Description:RAINBOW SILK SCARF/SHAWL
A lovely bright shawl/scarf woven with textured bourette silk which I wove recently during a weaving demonstration in my local village here in south west France. We had a " Marché Mondial, Métisse et Coloré" (simply translated an International Market) , with stalls selling items from many parts of the globe, several of them manned by people who had travelled from those places. My contribution, being a local resident, was to take my loom along and show visitors the wonders of weaving! This is the result.
This is a lightweight shawl, quite loosely woven to give drape and fluidity, with a bright rainbow coloured warp. These colours are slightly "tamed" by using a black weft, the result being a colourful shawl that is not too "in your face".
It measures 19" x 78.5", 48cm x 199cm and is finished with a simple knotted fringe.
Although it is a good size, because it is not a bulky shawl it could also double as a scarf during colder weather.
