Virtual SAORI Kai II – Winter White

Doneal has written in with the first post for the Virtual SAORI Kai II. Earlier this year Doneal ventured from spinning into weaving when she purchased one of the new SAORI WX-60 looms. She has been using her handspun and other yarns in her weaving.

Recently she used the SAORI White Wool warp and she says:

Here is the first thing I did on the prewound wool warp..it was
fun..especially mixing all kinds of yarns..used some handspun and some fat
stuff..but found that the warp was so delicate I didn’t want to use a lot of
my heavier yarns..

I was surprised at the drape..maybe it was because of the skinny yarns in the warp but its really comfortable to wear..light but warm..

Beautiful! I really like the way it drapes too, the colours look so soft and the open areas of weaving really add to it.

Thanks Doneal.

Happy Weaving,

    Doneal, It’s wonderful. I love the subtle colours and the drape. What a perfect time of year to weave your first wool shawl. Where are you from? Since this is virtual, maybe we should introduce ourselves?
