"Next Ruffled Scarf" Series

I rarely do pastels.  I decided that I would like to try pastels for these scarves as my next group in this series.  I am trying to reach customers in warmer climates and also provide scarves for three season wear. Not that bright colors cannot be worn in warmer weather.  Sometimes the brightest colors are evocative of spring flowers and summer heat.  However I thought it would be fun to see how pastels might work in this technique. Here are pictures of the warp going onto the loom. In weaver terms this is called "beaming".  The whole process of putting the warp on the loom from beaming to threading to tying on is called "dressing the loom".
