This shawl was woven using four strands of a lovely gray cashmere/silk blend, loosely twisted together, as warp. Weft was the same yarn, dyed black. The pattern is an advancing twill, either taken directly from, or greatly influenced by, an article in Weaver’s magazine (I think it’s also in Twill Thrills: The Best of Weaver’s).
This shawl was woven as a gift for a dear friend of mine, who has become a Tibetan lama (very rare for a Caucasian woman) and now lives in India, with only occasional teaching tours to the U.S. Sadly, I have no more photos of it – it was one of my favorite pieces when I wove it. I still think it’s beautiful, and I hope she’s enjoying it.
