Sometimes, a pop-up shop

Sometimes, a pop-up shop, has opened for 3-months at Floreat Forum. It is located in a prominent position, the first shop as you walk from the two-storey carpark to enter the shopping centre. I have arranged for my scarves to be on sale there. The photo below shows my display of cashmere and alpaca scarves at this venue.

Shamwani alpaca

I have used up my remaining natural coloured Shamwani alpaca yarns by weaving a long stripped scarf in dark brown, light brown and white as the warp. The weft was an off-white 40% possum/60% merino. The scarf is 2100mm x 200mm and weighs 127g.
It will be on sale on my stall at Perth Upmarket next Sunday at UWA.

Natural coloured alpaca x 2

Have just completed two scarves using two different 4-shaft patterns. The first is in a natural off-white alpaca yarn using a Canvas pattern. It is 1820mm x 200mm and weighs 170g. It is a long and bulky scarf but extremely soft.
The second is in a natural grey alpaca yarn using a Bronson Lace pattern. It is 1620mm x 200mm and weighs 150g. Not quite so soft as the first but still nice to touch, and a lovely shade of grey.
Both these natural coloured yarns are from Shamwani Alpaca Stud and the scarves will be on sale at my stall at Perth Upmarket on 20 March.

Fawn and white alpaca

Using alpaca yarn from Shamwani Alpaca Stud I have woven one scarf in fawn and white, and a second in fawn. The fawn and white scarf is 1570mm x 200mm and weighs 127g.
The fawn scarf is longer at 1840mm x 205mm and weighs 120g. The lighter weight of the second is due to using a looser weave. The fawn scarf does have a pattern but it is hard to see.
Both scarves are very soft and will be on sale at my stall at the Perth Upmarket at UWA on 20 March.
