Lacy cobweb scarves

On Sunday 5th October I’ll be teaching a lacy cobweb felt scarf workshop at Gisburn and thought you might like to see one of the samples for this workshop. Usually I work with the wool in a top form but decided to try and use up more of my stash, so chose to work with remnants of carded Merino in various colours.

I was thinking subtle colour changes but it’s not quite how it came out. Using carded fibre is fun to layout for this kind of scarf and enabled me to include a lot of colours  and shades very easily.

This is the reverse of the scarf where you can see I have a mix of red, pink and orange with small amounts of natural coloured Tussah silk.

There’s another example of lacy felt on it’s way in a day or two and if you fancy making one for yourself I still have space on the workshop.
