Silk Shawl

Image
This shawl, approximately 90 inches long by 40 inches wide, was juried into the 2010 Handweavers' Guild of America fashion show in Albuquerque next July. For weavers, here is the structure: It's woven in twill blocks of 3/1 and 1/3 twill, to show off both warp and weft. Both warp and weft are hand-dyed 60/2 silk. The warp was hand-painted in autumn colors, and the weft's solid color plays against the changing colors of the warp. This photo was taken by Tim Toals -- who is a wonderful photographer, with a studio at Village Gate in Rochester.
