Valley Yarns Scarf in Rayon Chenille is a way to weave a light weight rayon chenille scarf with well-behaved fringes. Instead of using chenille for weft, try using Valley Yarns 8/2 Tencel. It lightens the scarf, and the drape is terrific. The finishing method is a little off-beat and will probably surprise you, but it keeps the fringes orderly and tangle-free.
Equipment: 4-shaft loom, minimum 15” weaving width, 8-dent reed, one boat shuttle, and bobbin. For finishing, 1 Tyvek envelope a little wider than the scarf and at least twice the length of your fringe. Sewing machine with long basting stitch capability.
