Masala Ruana

I thought I'd reduce some of my stash by weaving yardage and create product for an event happening March next year.  This 4.6metre warp used 10 different yarns;  there is wool, mohair, ribbon, a gold lurex ribbon which looks elegant and a mohair that had fringed glitter in it.  This wove into the cloth and wasn't too in your face but after fulling the glitter popped up and looked like a Christmas tree so
over morning coffee, or two, I picked as many bits of glitter out as I could.  No way could I get them all but it now looks pretty good.
We used to call this garment a ruana but think it might now fall into the cape category.


  1. This looks like a very clever garment. Zoe and I like the sparkles.

  2. gorgeous fabric and construction!
