Every year our local yarn store has a big blow out sale. I have been guilty of buying a ball or two of this and that because it was so beautiful, but not knowing what I was every going to do with it. Then it turns out you have all these odd balls that aren't enough for a project. Dee has the solution. She adds them as accent warps and leaves them floating free when she twists the fringe of the main warp threads. This technique calls extra attention to their unique character. Just take a look at the exciting scarf pictures below.
She says the exotic yarns sometimes get caught in the heddles, but not as much as you might expect. Dee warps from front to back and winds warps in chains of all the same yarn. Then she designs her warp as she sleys the reed, dispersing the various yarns across the warp.
