Next Project - More Chenille!

I am planning my next project for my work at the ArtSpace. It will be my first experience using a floor loom (woohoo!). I have decided to continue with using chenille, but I am experimenting with a multi-color, multi-fiber warp. I was inspired by a beautiful handwoven scarf I received at Christmas that used chenille, ribbon, bamboo, silk, and many other types of fibers in the warp. I have decided to use red and gray chenille with some red ribbon accents. These are all yarns I picked up during my trip to The Fiber Loft in Massachusetts.

Any advice on the use of different fibers in the warp is much appreciated! I look forward to reporting back on the progress of this project.

Wow! Beautiful yarn! Sounds like it's going to be a fabulous project. Can't wait to see it as it develops.
