Hemp + Wool Grid Scarf

sold out

Fine hemp singles (meaning yarn with a single strand, yarn that is not plied) make up the warp of this scarf. Fine yarn means a lightweight textile.

Woven in a 2/1 twill (sometimes denim is woven in this structure!) which I learned about while researching fine woolen broadcloth. I recently learned that my ancestors were broadcloth weavers in England back at least as far as the mid 1700s. On my quest to learn more, I discovered a description of a precursor to broadcloth - a fine, high-quality, woolen fabric that was found in Finland with a 2/1 twill structure.

This 2/1 twill scarf has a delicate white on cream coloring and is lightweight enough for early spring days. The hemp warp adds softness and stability to the wool weft.

While weaving I clipped my warp threads in strategic places and dropped them off the back of the loom. I also used pieces of stiff paper to create spaces in the weft while I was weaving this scarf. Once off the loom and washed, the spaces remained and give this scarf an added airiness that is delicate and sophisticated all at once.

Edges are secured with tiny rows of stitching and cropped fringe, measures approximately 11” wide and 68” long .

Machine wash cool, dry low (don’t worry, it’s pre-shrunk!), warm iron if needed.
