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. I can't wait to see what results when this weave is combined with this warp!
I have the extreme pleasure of working with these amazing artisan-dyed merino/silk yarns for the weft. All I can say about these is that they were well worth the wait!
