Learning to Warp with Colors
I have three rayon yarns that I would like to use in a woven piece. The tan, variegated, and red/burgundy. Unfortunately, I'm not sure about the best way to use these three yarns.
Two of the yarns are two-ply (the tan and red), the variegated is a single. The shiney, cream colored yarn is a 6-ply rayon that I've been considering as an extra--either for warp or weft.
One of the challenges in designing this piece is a lack of coordinating yarn. It's gotten so challenging that I just looked in my thread drawers to see if perhaps some of my thread might work. I have a warp faced woven piece with a thread like weft....Hmmm. Any thoughts?
