I've now finished weaving this dyed silk yarn. I had 3 colours and wove 3 scarves and the 4th scarf I used the leftovers from the first 3. The first 2 scarves I have shown here. For the last 2 scarves I threaded the loom differently.
Instead of straight 1 to 8 like I did for the first 2:I did this:I now have to finish the fringes and than wash the scarves.
For now they look like this:

All though the colours were all different, the 2nd colour in each batch was very similar so in this last scarf that makes it blend in together.
I liked the effect I got from the dyed yarn (ball dyed on both sides with a different colour) so I will use this dye method again in future.
I have not come any further with dyeing the Shetland yarn. Another job is getting the little loom ready for weaving with some modifications. I hope to get this done before the weekend.
