Color Field Scarf 

The Color Field Scarf is woven with one of the most scrumptious textured yarns in our shop, silk noil. The beautiful sister to shinier bombyx silk, this yarn is made from the remnants of silk after the carding process. This gives it a lovely matte feel, and makes a scarf suitable for men and women. 

The vibrant colors blend together to create a variety of gem tone hues, and the soft texture of the silk adds dimension to the weave structure. Weave this on your rigid heddle, table, or floor loom. Grab a couple of kits if you're in holiday planning season - these will make cherished gifts!

Materials

Warp & Weft: 3 skeins of Italian Silk Noil Weaving Yarn or 1 skein of 10/2 Silk Noil Weaving Yarn and 2 skeins of Italian Silk Noil Weaving Yarn.

Kits: Each kit contains enough yarn to make a scarf that measures approximately 16" W x 90" L.

Variations 

Experimenting with the warp sett can produce very different results with the exact same yarn. Sarah wove this scarf with a sett of 10 ends per inch vs. the 12 ends per inch in the scarf above. This created a lighter, more airy fabric.

A subtle gradient was created by warping with the Italian Silk Noil Weaving Yarn in charcoal, followed by midnight and denim.

Hi Irene! This yarn comes form the mill we work with in Italy on skeins, with no labels, so that’s how we send it on. Sorry if it was confusing! You can see all of the information about the yarn here. This silk should be hand washed cold and laid flat to dry. https://www.gistyarn.com/collections/italian-silk-noil-weaving-yarn

I bought two Color Field kits, Newman and Rothko. Why did the yarn come as skeins instead of cones? It takes a lot of time winding all those into balls.
Also, why were there no labels on the yarns? I’ve never before bought yarn with no info on the company, weight, yardage, fiber content, and country of origin, and care instructions are usually on the label too.
