Lichen coloured Tailored Strands alpaca scarves

After weaving several bold, warm colours, suitable for winter I turn to spring.  Well, I am going to Canada today where spring is arriving.
Two scarves hand-woven in lichen coloured Tailored Strands 100% Australian alpaca yarn in two slightly different patterns.  Nominally 18800mm x 210mm and weighing 142g, these "new growth" coloured scarves will be ideal for crispy spring mornings.  Warm, luxurious feel, and easy on the eye, you can't go wrong whether you buy for yourself or a friend.
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movement.

Teal coloured Tailored Strands alpaca scarf

I am very pleased with my latest hand-woven scarf.  Woven using Tailored Strands 100% Australian alpaca yarn, coloured Teal, in an interesting pattern.  A lovely colour, a lovely feel, ready for a lovely person.  It will fly, being  1900mm x 215mm and weighing 147g, or you can wrap it around your neck several times for warmth.
I think that Aspects of Kings Park and The Artisan Store Fremantle may miss out on this one.

Claret coloured alpaca hand-woven scarves

What do you do with claret coloured 100% Australian alpaca yarn from Tailored Strands?  Well, I have hand-woven two lovely soft feeling luxurious scarves in two different patterns.  Both scarves are nominally 1800mm x 215mm and weigh 146g.
This time I have ear-marked one for myself, unless some one wants to buy it at the material price of $40.  Opps, it has a significant weaving error which I can see, can you?  The other one?  I have an idea, so it  may not appear in the shops unless I become desperate for stock.

A scarf with a difference

An interesting scarf has been hand-woven using an unlabelled yarn similar to Moda Vera Gentile, 92% nylon and 8% lurex.  This yarn has two threads with mainly silvered but sometimes pink coloured squares at intervals along the yarn.  Using Yeoman Aurora crepe (30% wool, 20% nylon, 50% acrylic) yarn as the weft the scarf is of an open, or loose, weave.  This scarf of only 80g may not keep you warm but its 1800mm x 240mm size will add that flowing flair of class to your outfit.

Ocean and royal blue handwoven alpaca scarves

It's February, and I should be cruising the high seas.  To compensate I have been spending time with ocean blue and royal blue coloured alpaca yarns from Tailored Strands.  Beautiful colours, beautiful feel and beautiful hand-woven scarves have come out of this activity.  Two, in fact, in slightly different patterns.  The two-tone one is 1710mm x 210mm and weighs 140g whilst the solid ocean blue on is 1890mm x 205mm and weighs 156g.
Can you resist?  I know we have four days of century temperatures coming, but cold days will come in due course.

Hand-woven Countrywide Happy Feet yarn into a scarf

Where does all the water go from the rain forests?  Of course, it flows out to sea via the numerous picturesque waterfalls, rivers and streams.  Sometime calm, but often flowing fast over the young rocky river beds and gorges as the water decends from the New Zealand Alps to the west coast.  These colours of the bubbling,  swirling water, shining under the sunny blue skies are shown in Countrywide Happy Feet yarn #33, a 75% wool, 25% nylon mix.
As a memory of my recent holiday to South Island in New Zealand I have used this yarn in an hand-woven scarf.  It is 1760mm x 185mm and weighs 133g.  Can you see the pristine waters rushing through over the waterfalls and across the rocky beds of the gorges under the blue lit skies?
See it soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movements.

Christmas is coming so I bring you good cheer.  Champagne? Yes, but this time it is a hand-woven scarf in Tailored Strands champagne coloured 100% Australian alpaca.  A rib pattern with lines in different directions on opposite sides, gives the scarf that lovely luxurious feel associated with alpaca.  The neutral colour will match almost all of your other colours.  You have the choice of two.  The first is 1850mm x 215mm and weighs 147g, whilst the second is shorter at 1700mm x 215mm and weighs 137g.  See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or buy direct.

Tailored Strands scarlet alpaca handwoven scarves

Getting ready for Christmas I have hand-woven two scarves in a scarlet coloured  Tailored Strands 100% Australian alpaca.  In 2-ply, and two different patterns, these brightly coloured scarves have a delicate soft luxurious feeling.  An excellent choice for Christmas presents to be posted as they are only nominally 125g, or just for self indulgence.
