Hand-woven Indian silk

I received from a friend in Japan 267g of Indian silk.  These yarns are very colourful and have given rise to a very interesting and unusual silk scarf.  I have used a hand-dyed multi-coloured thin silk yarn as the warp and the recycled sari silk as the weft.  It is a heavy scarf but will certainly be an eye-catching accessory.  For the record, the scarf is 1740mm x 210mm and weighs 237g.
