Mixed Warp Throws

The first one is finished. Cut off the loom, washed, dried, and pressed. It's a nice, cozy, nubbly surface. Size was 80x28 inches before finishing, 72x27 after. As expected, the soft warp yarns shrank more than the mercerized weft.

Now on to the next one. I wound the warp of greens, blues, and purples yesterday afternoon:

The warp colors blend with this cone of variegated rayon/cotton slub, which is scattered among the solid warp yarns:

Thanks for posting about this!! Mixed warps are an interest of mine that I want to delve into more this winter. It really helps to see what other people are doing.

The throw is beautiful - and I love the colors!
