Silk Noil Infinity Cowl Kit ~ Orchid
$ 48.00 USD
The Silk Noil Infinity Cowl by Lois Weaver is woven with our Italian Silk Noil on a rigid heddle loom. The spaced weft complements the soft, rustic texture of the silk noil and acts as a simple solution for button holes. Each edge is finished with buttons* so that the cowl can be worn in variety of ways.
*Buttons are not included with this kit, but you can look for 20MM diameter (~3/4") buttons at your local craft store or on Etsy.
For this project you will need a rigid heddle loom, shuttle & bobbins or stick shuttle and a 10 dent reed.
The Orchid Kit includes:
- 1 skein of Italian Silk Noil in Charcoal
- 1 skein of Italian Silk Noil in Sky
- a printable PDF of the pattern
I wove up the cowl on my antique floor loom, my first experience with weaving silk & leaving gaps in the weft. No warp threads broke, and it went very well. I inserted folded brown paper instead of cardboard (too thick) for the gaps, closed the shed and tapped it in place. I wasn’t sure what to do with the weft end just before each gap so I left them hanging and wove them in with a needle after taking it off the loom. The fabric feels wonderfully drapey and can’t wait to give it to my possible- future -daughter in law! Thanks for a nice weaving experience!
Haven’t put on loom yet as have the tea towels on. Silk feels nice. Can’t wait to start. Service is really nice
