We partnered with Skacel to create this stunning piece which is featured in their Magalog, volume 8. Our Winter Berry Shrug is woven in a subtle plaid using five lovely shades of HiKoo Sueno in the warp. For weft we alternated HiKoo Sueno and Tiara for just a hint a sparkle.
This was a true collaboration of all of our local talent. Sara Goldenberg, Jane’s co-author of Simple Woven Garments, designed the fabric. We engaged our shipping clerk, spinner and weaver, Betty Paepke, to weave the fabric on a 25” Flip Loom. Jane adapted the original shrug pattern from Simple Woven Garments by adding a pick-up pattern to the cuffs and tapering the sleeves. Judy Pagels, our shipping manager and one of our resident knitters, created the perfect cuffs that add a layered look to the piece.
