Gaviota (as in the strawberry, not the seagull)

Tracy Bromwich

Mmmm...strawberries! Here in Southern California, our farmer's markets have them nearly year-round. But they never taste as perfect as they do in the late-spring/early summer. Our favorite variety, Gaviota, has an intensely sweet flavor without any sourness. For this fresh summer colorway, I have paired a luscious strawberry red with a violet from the opposite end of the spectrum. The warp transitions through shades of coral, pink, lavender and periwinkle - with natural mixed in because who can resist a little cream with their strawberries?

The warp for Gaviota is 100% Egyptian cotton. It is woven with a sett of 24 EPI in a straight twill. 

THE WEFTS

The wefts are a fun selection of girly colors in a few different fibers. My favorite merino/silk yarn makes an appearance in fuchsia and coral. There is an ecru superwash wool and a hand-dyed mulberry silk/cotton yarn. The rest are yummy cottons in magenta, hot pink, purple and coral pink. I loved exploring the interaction between colors on this warp!
