This scarf uses a different synthetic yarn for the warp. It's called Red Heart Luster Sheen and makes for a heavier, warmer scarf more for winter than for fashion. The weft is a two ply wool in two colors of purple. In the picture of me spinning on my Uncle's lawn in Smithers (see first post) I am spinning the lighter of the two purples. The fringes on this are braided instead of twisted, the warp was too big for beads so I added small tufts of the purple at the ends of the black braides. I also made another scarf with this warp, but gave it away as a Christmas gift, so have no picture of it.
