Right now life can seem a little drab and dreary so a touch of colour can lift the spirits. That is what this scarf aims to do. I am attracted to bright colours which I try to replicate in my dyeing and my weaving. I also enjoy playing with different weaving structures to showcase colours to their advantage. In this scarf the background (warp) colour of rose pink contrasted with the foreground colour (weft) of mulberry produce a damask-like effect and the wonderful sheen of silk ensures a pleasing and eminently wearable scarf. This scarf is just the right length to sit comfortably in the lapels of a jacket or coat.

 

 About Vicki

I came to weaving a little later than do many other craftspeople. Until then I was involved with teaching, supporting teachers and students in their use of the new communications technologies. Once I had more free time I discovered the wonderful world of spinning and weaving. I have spent the majority of my time weaving ever since. What attracted me first was the wonderful world of colour, then texture then the beauty of natural fibres, mainly silk, alpaca and cashmere. I dye my own yarns and I am constantly surprised at what can be achieved with varying colours and hues.   Luxury fibres and colour are central to my work.
