Two very different shawls
The weft is sari silk ribbon -also from Leilani Fiberarts. The weaver is Kathy Popoff - she was testing out the pattern for me, and I think she did a lovely job. She graciously said it was a really fun project to do. The first and last several inches are in a 4 over 4 leno lace, and the center section is a form of basket weave. Very loosely woven to preserve some softness and drape. There can be some migration of the warp threads, but you just tug them back into shape.
