I wove this wrap shawl in warm colors ranging from burgundy and brown through reds into oranges and yellows. The interweaving thread is a red-brown which interacts with the colors in the lengthwise threads to create a spectacular pattern. Suitable for evening wear and dressy occasions, this handwoven wrap shawl is certain to win compliments.

The fibers come from renewable resources …. from bamboo and from soy. The lengthwise yarn is bamboo, a soft yet strong fiber. The bamboo gives a lovely sheen to the shawl. The interwoven thread is soysilk, an environmentally friendly fiber made of byproducts from the tofu manufacturing process. I find both fibers a pleasure to weave with. Silky and lustrous, the handwoven shawl drapes beautifully.

The shawl contains over 1300 fine lengthwise threads. I carefully selected the palette of colors, measured the yarn, and painstakingly threaded it onto my loom. I touch every inch of the fiber I use. My complex design used all twelve shafts of my floor loom and required intense concentration as I stepped on treadles and threw the shuttle to interweave the fiber. I weave entirely by hand (and foot), without the aid of a computer. Creating this shawl was pure pleasure. The colors and the pattern are so vibrant!

I finished the ends with hand hemstitching and with an additional 5” of hand-twisted fringe.
