Seed head scarf

Inspired by one of the scarves made at my last nuno scarf workshop, I thought I’d make a scarf using the seed head theme and incorporating one of my favourites – texture.

It’s onto a hand dyed silk chiffon base. I began by layng out lengths of wool yarn to form the stems and then topped each one with a seed head made from carefully picked out bits of wool nepps. I then covered the whole in a fine layer of wool and  mirrored the seed heads, this time using throwsters silk waste on the seed heads to give extra sheen.

I don’t know about you but it upsets me if a design on a scarf is not double sided in some way. On the blue side I have the texture and on the white, the texture and the shine, happy, happy.

This is now for sale in Out of the Ordinary in Skipton. I hope someone loves it as much as I do.
