Loominarias scarves are light and silky and wonderful to touch. Handcrafted from hand-dyed tencel in unique, vibrant colorways, these luxurious fashion items are handwoven in a variety of original and traditional twill patterns.
Dyed and woven by fiber artists Carrie May and Mindy McCain, each scarf or shawl is a unique product of pattern and color, blending together to create a luminescent, colorful work of art. The tencel fiber makes them easy to care for — simply hand wash in the sink with regular detergent, hang or dry flat, and finish by steam pressing to restore the softness and shine.

The Midwest Weavers Conference starts today, June 12, with pre-conference workshops at Butler Univeristy in Indianapolis. Thursday is the opening for the general conference with exhibits, lectures, classes and vendors. The exhibits and vendors are open to the public during daytime hours and you can get tickets for the Fashion Show and Keynote Lecture at the door.
Loominarias will be in the vendor hall with Carrie and her dyed warps. Carrie is teaching a dye class and Mindy is in charge of the Fashion Show. It will be great fun! www.midwestweavers.org

Available in 3.5 and 7-yard lengths, these warps have 208 ends with a cross at both ends. The 3.5-yard warp, sleyed at 24 epi, can produce an 8" wide scarf woven 85" long (plus fringe). The 7-yard warp can produce 2 scarves. You can also put 2 warps together in the reed to create a wider scarf or shawl, or mix in solid color stripes to create a beautiful effect. Or split the 3.5-yard warp in half and weave two 4" wide scarves.
