2 orange cashmere scarves

Have just completed two similar hand-dyed orange cashmere scarves, 1730mm x 155mm 50g and 1930mm x 155mm 55g. The dye is not constant so there is a colour striation besides the woven pattern. As you would expect, both scarves are very soft.

Hand painted merino yarn

I have been asked by Debbie at Calico and Ivy to weave her some scarves using some hand painted merino yarn from Canada that she stocks. I have sufficient yarn to weave 12 scarves similar to the previous two. Each bundle will be used for each scarf. The bundles of 4 skeins will produce two scarves.

Black, black/ivory cashmere

My latest scarves are two cashmere ones, one black, 1780mm x 160mm, 60g, and one black and ivory, 1830mm x 150mm, 62g. As you would expect, both are very soft items.
