Dyed Silk Warp She is a beautiful thing to behold. I hate to hide her in the crackle warp. I once saw some beautiful silk scarves woven in huck lace. I think this yarn would be beautiful treated just that way.

But I’m not going to. It will be the crackle warp for the upcoming sample/scarf.

It is not just the color that is beautiful. What is just as beautiful is what has happened to the yarn as a result of all my snapping and slapping of it. It is flat and soft. The divisions that the pink figure-of-eight ties make in the skein are clear. I have high hopes for the unskeining to cones process.

Still, I can see her woven as huck lace…………

By the way, take a look at what I’ve been spinning from The Spinning Bunny. This is wool but doesn’t the color look familiar? I must really like this color!Fiber from Spinning Bunny

Oh that red is lovely! Huck sounds like a lovely plan. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I think I found a suitable draft for my mystery yarn :) I wondered that about Mc Morran too. I did not see the bumps at first!

Thank you, Laritza. I'm glad you've found a draft for your yarn. I'm eager to see it and how the weaving works out. I have the feeling that this is one big learning experience warp!
