Moda Vera Lucente

I purchased one ball each of four different colours of Moda Vera Lucente yarn at Spotlight last Saturday. This is a 87%nylon/13%polyester yarn. I have now woven the first scarf using colour 11235 as the warp and a grey/blue silk yarn as the weft. Due to the small amount of yarn a very open plain weave was used. Interestingly, upon washing the scarf the weft fibres moved randomly along the warp to make an intriging pattern. The scarf is 1640mm x 170mm and weighs 74g.The scarf will be on my stall at the Balingup Small Farm Field Day this coming Saturday.
