Beautiful colour combination! I am so inspired by your work!

I just love the colors too!

Margreet said...

Hey Doni, what are you making? This looks really interesting, I love the colours together. It looks wider than a scarf warp.

Hilary said...

Beautiful.....is this a draft from a book, or did you make it up?

Helga Jossen said...

Beautiful stripes!!

Jane Flanagan said...

Looking great! Beautiful colours! And on the Delta too- how is it behaving??

Donatella said...

Thank you!
It's just a random stripe warp(to be honest is a collection of cashmere leftovers!) for a scarf, about 44cm wide. The stripes I make up as I go,
but I select all the colours before.

Jane, the Delta is a pleasure to weave with!

Hi Doni, how do you find using cashmere as the warp yarn? Is it strong enough? Do you get many breakages?

Donatella said...

So far I didn't have any breakages - I use 2/30 cashmere yarn, double, with a 80/10 sett - not too open but wide enough for the yarn to fluff up when it's washed, and the result is a very light, soft and warm fabric.

Thank you for sharing this information! I will give it a try!
