For the last several years I have concentrated my weaving focus on making chenille scarves. I love texture and color. Rayon chenille is a fiber that feels luxurious. After much experimentation, I found that using a very fine tussah silk weft allows the textile to have a good drape and also prevents the rayon chenille from “worming.” I design the placement of color and stripes for each scarf individually, so each scarf is unique. The stripes are based on the fibonacci sequence, a series of numbers in which each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers… 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, etc. These numbers are found in nature and can be observed in flower parts, leaflets etc.
