Bengala Weaving

 

After the Bengala Dye workshops here on Salt Spring Island, I tried some of my own Bengala Dyeing on small skeins of yarn as well as a warp.

Here are some of the yarns before…

I have now put the dip-dyed warp onto the loom…

And started weaving with the wonderful Bengala dyed yarns…

plus some great handspun yarn that Lynn (from SAORI Berkeley) brought for me on her last visit. It is like “Lorrie’s Locks” spun into a thick and chunky yarn, with the locks all sticking out this way and that. The colours go so well with the Bengala!

What’s on your loom?

Happy Weaving,

    This looks amazing! I’m just about done with my bright blue and green warp with softer pastel blues and greens in the weft. I’m thinking the Bengala threads I dyed have to go on next!
