This tapestry is a real balancing act in regards to the light shades of brown/fawn, which need to blend but also show up sufficiently. What looks great in the yarn doesn't turn out that great when woven and I find myself basically test-weaving and undoing -searching for more different yarn and weaving again. I feel like a beginner weaver, all my experience in choosing colours and shades seems to have disappeared when it comes to fawn and shades thereof - but there is some progress and I am still smiling! :-) All the background colour is handspun silk (by me) and plant dyed.
This one with a yellow hem,
all at my Etsy shop
The recycled Sarisilk is the loom waste from weaving Saris and is hand spun (this lot was hand spun by indian ladies :-)
This runner has a knotted fringe,
Because the Sarisilk colours are randomly spun each runner is different.
Yes, didn't quite manage to keep up with all the spring grass but I hope you still like the flower.
Until next time, best wishes for all your projects!
