woven scarf for w.a.r.p. digital residency

This scarf was created with waste cotton for the W.A.R.P. digital residency. I typically do not weave, dye or spin with cotton so this residency gave me the opportunity to explore cotton. I experimented with spinning cotton roving, made a number of dyed samples with natural dyes on the waste cotton and woven several samples before ending on this final project. The final scarf was woven on a 16/2 linen warp with an 8/2 cotton weft. I placed the slubs of cotton (dyed with cutch) every 20 picks along with a copper shape found at the hardware store.
