Gold cashmere

This week I have woven two scarves using a hand-dyed gold-coloured cashmere 2-ply yarn. The patterns of each are slightly different. One scarf is 1390mm x 160mm and weighs 46g whilst the second one is 1410mm x 160mm and weighs 48g.

Purple/mauve cashmere shawl

It has been awhile since my last blog entry. This is because I have been weaving a large cashmere shawl, 1800mm x 490mm weighing 168g. I used two colours, purple and mauve, of a 2-ply hand-dyed cashmere yarn in an interesting pattern. The 479 warps, and the alternating colours, made progress slow. But an extremely soft and interesting garment has been the result.
