Lynn Langhoff

To create multi-tone warp for scarves, I either paint permanent fabric dyes on a stretched length of warp yarns with brushes, or dye skeins of yarn, each in several colors. To achieve unique hues for the yarn, I custom blend primary colors of the dyes. The yarn is heat set, washed and dried. After the warp is dry, the weft yarn is custom dyed in a color blend to enrich and complement the warp yarns. The threading of each warp yarn end and the treadling of the harnesses with the weft yarn determine the interlacement or pattern. After each woven scarf is removed from the loom, the fringes are hand twisted, and the scarf is washed and pressed to “finish”.
