After a series of calming color ways, I felt it was time for an infusion of happy excitement! A long time in the works, this project has come together precisely at the time of year when I need a little boost. The joyful yarns will bring warmth and brightness to my chilly studio in the days ahead. The warp combines lipstick reds and reddish oranges with plummy purples, transitioning through corals and pinks with highlights of tangerine and light peach. It is comprised entirely of my favorite fluffy cottolin. For the weave, I chose the same draft I previously used for the Darwaza Serrure 1. It results in a dense, thick weave that is lush and cushy with a subtle geometric interest.
A new weave and warp fiber combination, I chose to sample it at full-scale before opening this up to semi-custom spots. I am really loving the results and am happy to make the rest of the warp available now!
The sample wrap was woven with a very special hand-dyed merino/silk weft. I have chosen several colorways dyed by the incredibly talented Brenda of Phydeaux Designs that pair wonderfully with this warp. I think you will appreciate the artistry of her yarns. She has a remarkable eye for color and she works with luxuriously soft base yarns.
The above wrap is spoken for but there is room on the loom for more. It is a 50 yard warp (30 woven meters) with specific wefts available. Please see below for the options. I will hold a random draw for the semi-custom spots and will draw as many as my warp length will allow.
