Turnabout Scarf in Chenille & Tencel
Two Great Yarns in one scarf!
Soft and luxurious, this rayon chenille is a delight to wear but works best in “stricter” weave structures. For that reason, Sarah Jackson chose diversified 4-shaft plain weave for this cowl-style reversible scarf. Diversified plain weave has no floats, allowing the chenille to strut its stuff.
Gypsy Chenille works equally well in both warp and weft, making it a perfect candidate for diversified plain weave. Its trademark softness creates a sumptuous scarf that’s delightful to weave and wear. We love the feel of fabrics woven from Gypsy Chenille and the fact that it comes in over 100 solid and variegated colorways.
Our 8/2 Tencel serves as the perfect foil for Gypsy Chenille. Silky, shimmery, and strong, the Tencel lets the chenille shine while adding to the luxuriousness of the scarf.
