Cozy & Casual

Doesn’t the name Cozy & Casual sound like a perfect “in-between” scarf you can wrap yourself in as Spring slowly turns into Summer? Barbara wove this delightful scarf using Organic Cotton Cloud, Eco Jeans and 16/2 cotton yarns. The magic of Summer & Winter’s weave structure shines in this cozy but dramatic scarf. And … this scarf would be perfect for Fall as well – a practical but beautiful all-season scarf 😉

From Our Inbox

We’ve received photos of a stunning shawl woven by PK from New Zealand. We love seeing what PK has created and have shared her weaving with you in a previous newsletter. This time PK created a 40/2 linen shawl, using a division of space in 3 with one of the thirds in stripes – Fire Red, English Rose, Denim and Ginger. The warp was a total of 600 ends at 20epi. What a fabulous shawl PK, and thank you for your generosity by being willing to share this spectacular shawl with your JST “family”.
