This kit includes all the yarns needed to weave this stylish vest which is featured in Deborah Jarchow's newest book, Rigid Heddle Weaving Basics & Beyond.

The vest is made by weaving three panels all on one warp. It's very easy to assemble and can be styled in several different ways. You can weave this vest with or without fringe for even more design possibilities. 

Using the color fade technique blends five warp colors creating a multi-hued palette that will expand your wardrobe. We've also included Bambu 12 for the weft which works beautifully with the Bamboo Pop.  

There are two color options available. Frosty Morning in shades of blues, silver, and gray, and Beach Gal in shades of peach, coral, and almond.
