Tabby, Tabby, Twill

Getting projects completed has been slow so far this year!  I just completed the last of three chenille scarves, twisted the fringe and wet finished.  The warp is rayon chenille using three colors.

I used three different wefts. Far left is a pale yellow chenille weft in plain weave.  Middle is a silver/blue bamboo also in plain weave.  The scarf on the right is a pale grey tencel in straight twill.

The photo does not really show the difference in sheen.  As expected, the tencel scarf has the most and the all chenille has the least.  The tencel has a very silken look.

Two of the scarves are gifts, and the one in the middle I will keep for a fresh spring look!
