Never throw anything away. At the risk of being called a Yarn Hoarder I don’t throw any chenille away if there is at least a three yard length. Three yards (or a little less) is the length I need to make a scarf. I dumped out a couple of bags of leftover chenille and organized it by color. This made two warps.The first uses the yarns on the left side of the upper photo, going into the purple range.The color isn’t very good on this photo but this was mostly yarns from the right side. Here are the finished pieces:I used a fine cotton weft for this scarf mainly because I couldn’t figure out which color of chenille would work across all of these stripes. By using a fine weft the color of that disappears and the eye sees just the warp color.This scarf was different. I used a blue chenille weft. The blue dominates but pulls all the other colors together.
These scarves are for sale at the Artery now and on my website.
