Weaving a Mohair Scarf with Deborah Jarchow
While learning to weave, you’ve probably been advised to stay away from hairy yarns. During this class, you’ll learn the secrets of working with beautiful mohair yarn. Although a bit tricky, you can tame the hairy fiber in both warp and weft to create a stunning piece. Learn to add beads or tie decorative knots to tame the fringe. Overcome the challenges and add another skill to your weaving accomplishments!
Note: Rigid-heddle looms provided for class use.
300 yards mohair yarn (I strongly recommend Trendsetters Silkhair), measuring tape, manila file folder, tapestry needle, scissors, about 10- 15 yards of waste yarn (acrylic worsted works best), cardboard tube from inside a paper towel roll, 2 brown paper grocery bags, 150 beads that will fit on your yarn (size 6 usually works), dental floss threader (I will have extra threaders if you can’t find one).
