                             and make your own modifications as needed.

                            We love getting two different scarves…a “light” one and a “dark” one, because one

                            scarf is woven with hand-dyed Jorie II as the weft and the other is woven with 

                            Zola as the weft.  

                           The two scarves each have a different weight, too, so you can wear the "light" 

                           in warmer weather and the 'dark" one in cooler weather. or one for you and one as a gift.

                           Each scarf is approximately 5.5” wide; the scarf using Jorie II as the weft will be

                           approximately 45" long (plus fringe) and the scarf using Zola as the weft will be

                           approximately 75" (plus fringe)

                           It is advised that you use your own loom for this project as there are 2 scarves to weave.
