Wrap yourself in a stunning Bambu 12 shawl designed and personalized with your very own horoscope!
This Color Horoscope Shawl is designed to be used with Bonnie Tarses' Color Horoscope Weaving Instruction Packet.
With Bonnie's warping & weaving directions, which can be ordered directly through her blogspot, you will be able to weave your own personal horoscope into a lovely shawl or throw. We've wound off just the right amount of our Bambu 12 yarns.
This exclusively designed yarn package contains 400 yards each of twelve gorgeous Bambu 12 colors. That's 4800 yards of prewound yarns. Plus, we include 4000 yards of Bambu 12 to use for the weft yarn (choose color below). This kit is both convenient and economical since you do not have to purchase all 12 colors on full size cones.
By using this much finer (6300 yds/lb) Bambu 12 yarn, you will weave a lighter weight, more drapable and lustrous shawl. Yarns are used double in warp and weft with no fear of breakage or tangling.
Whether you use Bonnie's warping sequence based on your birth chart or if you design your own warp sequence, you're going to weave this Color Horoscope Shawl into a stunning warp-faced fabric sett at 24 epi using all of the rainbow colors in the warp and your choice of one color of Bambu 12 for the weft. This will weave a fabric 14-17" x 70" that can also be used as a shawl,wrap,throw, bedspread or ruana.
This is a great opportunity to try our new Bambu 12 in a rainbow of color! (Click on photo for closer view)
