This tallit can be executed in zephyr (wool/silk blend) or other yarns. I first made it for myself to wear at my son’s bar mitzvah, at the time of Israel Independence Day. The white stripes on blue is a reversal of the traditional “blue on white” design of a traditional tallit. The stripe “area” is woven in a freestyle rather than a planned and symmetrical pattern. The mix of white yarns include a rayon, railroad ribbon which gives adds a bit of a “sheen” to the solid white stripes. This is definitely one of my favorite designs!!
