First woven FO

Warp: Millspun oatmeal BFL (sport/light DK weight)

Weft: My (The Thylacine) Oatmeal BFL/Silk in ‘Jansz’ handspun as 2-ply approx 14wip

I’m really pleased with how this turned out. My selvedges aren’t as tidy as I’d like them to be but they seemed to be neater once I’d washed the scarf in the machine.

I really like how the stripes came out on this. It has a bit of drape due to the silk content and I’m wondering what other yarns I can use, particularly for warp that will encourage drape. I have plenty more of this BFL and some grey shetland too, so I’ll probably be weaving up a few more of these scarves in various colourways.
