  • Rigid heddle loom with at least 8″ weaving width and 7.5 or 8 dent reed
  • Warping peg
  • threading/sley hook
  • clamps
  • 200 yards each of 2 contrasting colors (think black and white) of a smooth, solid color lace – dk weight yarn for the warp. The warp yarns should be smooth, non-hairy, strong enough not to break and at least 2 ply (no singles).
  • You will also need 200 yards of lace or fingering weight yarn for weft
  • 10 – 15 yards waste yarn (acrylic worsted weight works well)
  • scissors
  • tapestry needle
  • 2 brown paper grocery bags
  • post it notes
  • tube from inside a paper towel roll
  • tape measure
  • tapestry needle
  • shuttle.

NOTE: For your first clasped warp scarf, it is best to use 2 solid color yarns for the warp that highly contrast (think black and white). The weft can be one of the warp colors or something different depending on your taste.

There is homework for this class. Homework will be sent in an email along with class handouts.
