Handwoven multicoloured cashmere scarf

I have finally gotten around to weaving the remaining leftovers of cashmere yarns from previous projects.  With limited amounts of yarns I planned for a 1500mm x 160mm scarf.  Well, the final result is 1430mm x 160mm and weighing 49g with 4g not used.  The leftovers were different quantities of yarns of varying colours which I wove on a natural coloured Corriedale warp.  As I was weaving the scarf I was a bit worried with the array of different pinks with purple and moss green, but, whoa, the final product is excellent.  And being my last cashmere scarf - IT IS MINE!

Claret and grey hand-woven alpaca scarves

Claret and grey, may I say, are very popular colour combinations.  I have sold more than 11 hand-woven scarves in these colours already.  Using Tailored Strands 100% Australian alpaca yarns I have hand-woven them in the same two patterns as my previous two-tone blue scarves - can you see the same pattern as I am showing the reverse side mainly.
Two beautifully soft, and luxurious, scarves for you to choose from, with a size nominally 1850mm x 220mm and weighing 142g.
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle, depending upon stock movements, or unless sold sooner.

Ocean and royal blue alpaca handwoven scarves

I must be in a blue mood as I have hand-woven two more blue tone scarves.   The ocean blue and royal blue coloured Tailored Strands 100% Australian 4-ply alpaca yarns match beautifully.  Do you like the two different patterns? and have you noticed the different pattern on the reverse sides?  This is the first time I have used these patterns and I am very pleased with the results.  What man would not like to wear these luxurious soft feeling scarves.  I know that many a woman would love to wear them!
The first one in long, being 1930mm x 220mm and weighs 153g, whilst the second is more the normal length being 1800mm x 220mm and weighing 142g.

Hand-woven scarves using Full Circle Fibres cotton yarns

It is pleasing to be able to make a product which is 100% Australian made.  Full Circle Fibres grow the cotton in Queensland, have it spun in Victoria,  hand-dye it in Queensland, and then I have hand-woven it in Western Australia!
In the first scarf I have taken their ocean and cornflower dyed cotton and hand-woven them into a patterned scarf with the ocean as the warp and the cornflower as the weft.  The yarns are not solid dyed so some specks of white appear to add interest to the appearance.
In the second scarf I have used the jade coloured yarn as the warp and the crimson as the warp in an equally interesting pattern.
Both scarves are nominally 1830mm x 210mm and weigh 157g.  These scarves will appeal to cotton lovers, or those allergic to wool whilst proudly being 100% Australian.
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle.

Hand-woven Full Circle Fibres hand-dyed cotton scarf

If you like to buy 100% Australian products you don't need to look pass this latest hand-woven scarf.  Made from 100% Australian cotton yarns from Full Circle Fibres (FCF), it is grown in St George, Queensland, spun in Victoria, hand-dyed by FCF, and finally hand-woven by me in Perth, Western Australia.
The hand-dyed colours of fushia, charcoal and purple give an interesting mix of colours in a woven pattern.  If you are a cotton enthusiast you will love this scarf which is 1870mm x 215mm and weighs 155g.
See it soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movements.

Noro Kibou and Tailored Strands alpaca

Noro Kibou is a yarn made from 54% cotton, 34% wool and 12% silk.  This time I have hand-woven this yarn on a warp of Tailored Strands 100% Australian alpaca yarn coloured champagne.  A lovely soft coloured scarf emerges with interesting flashes of spring time colours.  The scarf is 1740mm x 190mm and weighs 143g.
I completed on the same warp a second scarf using the champagne alpaca as the weft besides as the warp.  A lovely patterned soft 100% alpaca scarf in a solid champagne (or oatmeal) colour.  Not only will it feel and look luxurious, it  will complement your darker favoured colours.  This one is 1730mm x 200mm and weighs 125g.
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movements.
