For this infinity scarf I have taken the colours of a hand dyed skein of wool called Waterlily and added a selection of pinks and purples in a mixture of wool, alpaca, ribbons and eyelash yarns to add colour and texture.
The weft is a fine pink wool and eyelash yarn inlaid with the weft make it even more soft and cosy. It has a short, knotted fringe which has been stitched into an infinity scarf by hand.
Waterlily measures 67cm x 26cm
When designing this item I used an orphaned ball of variegated yarn for its colour inspiration and added other yarns from my stash. It’s what we call a ‘stash buster’, using up small amounts of yarn too small for anything else.
I recommend a gentle hand wash and dry outside if at all possible
About Five Turrets Handwoven
I live in Selkirk in the Scottish Borders and started weaving in 2015 when I got my first four shaft Ashford table loom. I love all things fibre but I’m truly hooked on weaving. I'm lucky enough to have my own home weaving studio to house my ever growing collection of looms.
I hope you like what you see in my shop. I make handwoven scarves, blankets and homeware. My craft is all about waste reduction and sustainability. Weaving is essentially interlocking warp and weft and my passion is to do that by combining unloved and surplus materials into one of a kind beautiful and useful cloth creations. Most of the yarns I use are Scrap Store or charity shop finds, mill ends and surplus stock. If I buy new, the emphasis is always on ethical production and from local spinners and dyers.
