5 new scarves are now being woven with a rustic feel. The warp is a Jaspe silk. This is a muga silk spun with noil giving an uneven yarn. The weft silk & merino wool. When woven the silk merino dominates with the Jaspe silk giving flecks & speckles of colour.


Rustic Rupestre is finished with Rustic Sand on the loom, see pictures.

3 more colour ways to come, Blue, Cerise pink & Raspberry. I will post as these are made.
