4-Shaft Diversified Plain Weave
Soft and luxurious, this rayon chenille is a delight to wear but works best in “stricter” weave structures. For that reason, Sarah Jackson chose diversified 4-shaft plain weave for this cowl-style reversible scarf. Diversified plain weave has no floats, allowing the chenille to strut its stuff.
Gypsy Chenille works equally well in both warp and weft, making it a perfect candidate for diversified plain weave. Its trademark softness creates a sumptuous scarf that’s delightful to weave and wear. We love the feel of fabrics woven from Gypsy Chenille and the fact that it comes in over 100 solid and variegated colorways. Check out our Weaving with Chenille Tips & Hints if chenille weaving is new to you.
Our 8/2 Tencel serves as the perfect foil for Gypsy Chenille. Silky, shimmery, and strong, the Tencel lets the chenille shine while adding to the luxuriousness of the scarf.
You'll find the pattern for this, and seven other luxurious scarves in Handwoven magazine's new Handwoven Loom Theory: Four Shaft Scarf Collection. It's a special collection of high-end scarves woven using luxury yarns, with designs that specifically highlighted the unique qualities of those yarns.
View Look Book Handwoven Loom Theory: Four Shaft Scarf Collection is the first of three scarf lookbooks planned for 2018. In this one, Handwoven celebrates fine silk, wool, rayon chenille, tencel and linen yarns in four-shaft patterns. Some of the best weaving designers used their expertise and experience to design scarves that are not only beautiful because of the yarns they are woven in but also interesting because of the weave structures used.
