Weaving with Sock Yarn
Sock yarn makes great scarves! You can use it for your warp and your weft for super easy and fast weaving.I like to add a strand of lace weight mohair to the weft to add softness and drape. Being a superwash yarn I like what a little wool does in the finishing by filling in the spaces.
I have to admit that when I saw the scarves in the Ashford Knitters loom book with the sock yarn scarves I had to try them, and then I was hooked! I have also used Mountain Colours Barefoot sock yarn, which weaves up beautifully.
The mohair in it makes for a gorgeous hand and drape.
I can't wait to see what Opal will be offering for new colours this Fall.
