This photo isn't quite 'true' - it looks more green than it actually is. This warp was a bit of a challenge as I was - I am - trying really hard to use up what I already own, not buy more yarn. So I had to get a little bit creative.
This is 2/16 bamboo from Brassard (or Halcyon - there may be other US suppliers). I had 16 spools of black - not enough for a shawl warp. I also had some dark blue in the same yarn, but not quite enough. So I thought, what the heck, and added four green. This still wasn't enough so instead of beaming 32 ends, I wound 30 but several 'extra' sections. When I go to sley, I'll do it as 32 epi.
I have quite a bit of 2/10 Tencel, 2/8 Tencel, the fine bamboo from Silk City and lots of 2/16 cotton in a limited number of colours. I wound a 40 yard warp and hope to get maybe 14, 15 shawls? Still not sure how long I'm going to weave them. More than 72" because that isn't quite long enough - probably 84". I need to do some more math.
I did a quick and dirty threading - a large fairly simple central motif, a simple border for each side and the space between those two will be simple point progression. Weaving will be twill variations, to be determined.
