I’ve chosen my yarns for my Seashell Scarf. I like intense colors. I also like to experiment. I will be using a 12-dent rigid heddle. The warp yarn is fingering weight Araucania sugarcane rayon, which is similar in thickness to 3/2 cotton, the warp yarn I used to weave my Mermaid Scarf. The tabby weft is 10/2 UKI No. 002 Light Turquoise. The pattern weft is experimental: 4-ply superwash sock yarn from Blissful Knits Etsy shop hand dyed rainbow gradient yarn. It’s similar in thickness to the warp yarn, and because it’s plied superwash, it won’t puff up as much as a singles wool yarn would. I will use about 3/4 of it for the scarf. Because some of the blue areas are nearly the same shade as the warp yarn, I’m going to cut off the blue on the outside and start with blue-green.
