Centre Pull Ball Scarves

If you can remember, I did some indigo dyeing in the summer (when was that!) and at last I've finally found time to photograph my indigo dyed "Centre-Pull Ball" scarves.

I wove them on a rigid heddle (Ashford 30cm Knitters Loom) with 2 "ends" of Blue Faced Leicester chunky wool that was indigo dyed as previously explained and 1 end of indigo dyed curled loop boucle.

The first scarf was woven with the same white BFL chunky yarn as the warp.

The second one was woven with the indigo dyed curled loop boucle.

I'm really pleased with them, I only wish you could feel how soft they are, oh and now I need to weave (or knit) the two "Shibori" hanks I dyed at the same time.

Very nice Alison! I will have to give this idea a try sometime.

I think these are totally delicious.

Thank you both. It's so easy to do, but I have to say, the BFL and the boucle really make them!

Hi I like the look of the balls Alison, and the effect is very attractive.

Willington Weaver said...

Thanks, Helen. I am pleased and will eventually get round to knitting or weaving the "shibori" hanks.

Hi Alison
I have some balls similarly dyed but not woven yet. Must give it a go as soon as my workshop is warmer!
Did I contact you last year about grommets for drop spindles? I have lost my hotmail account and so a record or mails and addresses.
I have just found a supplier for the grommets.

Hi Maggie

I'd be grateful for the information, thanks. Although someone said they are used by electricians and to look in my local DIY store!
