Ode is melange-dyed, where different colors and shades are blended together, creating a rich, unique hue that imparts depth to your weaving. A generous sett and light touch when weaving means projects weave up quickly on both rigid heddle and multi-shaft looms. This lofty, luxurious yarn blooms into spectacularly soft scarves and shawls when wet-finished, and can be used with Array for home decor overshot projects or blankets and large garments that may require a bit of structure.
I came back to post two photos of my finished scarf, made from cream Ode. From start to finish, the weaving was a joy, and I am delighted with the result.
I made the Light & Lacy Scarf from the Agate Ode. It is wonderful to work with and it turned out so nice...and soft!
This is one of the softest yarns I have ever felt, and yet it is strong enough for warp on my rigid heddle loom and does not stick together and make havoc with my sheds.
I’m making a scarf using a pickup-stick pattern of warp and weft floats. It has what knitters call “good stitch definition” — the three-dimensional structure shows up beautifully. I expect it will be very warm.
I have color cards for this yarn, and they are all quite beautiful and subtle. I am dreaming of many more projects with this yarn!
Great colors and terrific to weave with!
The baby alpaca is a beautiful yarn..easy to work with..a true pleasure! The obsidian color is absolutely stunning.
