Sunset Feathers Shawl

Project info
Tools and equipment
Megado 16 shaft
24 epi
8/2 painted warp
multi shades
8/2 tencel
Valley Yarns 8/2 Tencel

I succumbed to temptation and bought a gorgeous painted tencel warp called “Dazzling” from Carr Park Artisans (400 ends / 8 yards). The colours flow beautifully from one to another (see pictures) and so it was a challenge to find a draft that would flow as well. I added black and gold borders and used black as my weft colour. I tried to find another unifying colour but it was beyond my stash capabilities!

Finally I threaded an 8 shaft point twill and had a long treadling repeat for an twill progression that looks so much like feathers to me. I decided to let my Megado keep track of the treadling so I could just relax and watch the colours change smiley

I got two shawls (second shawl is a separate project) plus a bonus table runner (19” x 30” )
