Woven Shibori Resist Threads

Now that the scarves have been dyed a pale yellow and have dried, it's time to pull those resist threads. Start on one side and pull about half way, then tie those resist threads in a knot. You need to make those knots really tight, so don't be afraid to snug them up.

Now go to the other side and pull those resist threads really tight. It help save your hands if you use something to help you pull those threads. I use a bobbin, but a pencil or knitting needle would work just as well.

I have two scarves to do, so this may take a while.........
