Black and coloured

A new addition to my range of cashmere scarves is one in a black 4-ply cashmere yarn from Knitter's Addition. Being black, it is very difficult to see the pattern. It is 1650mm x 185mm and weighs 117g.

For something different I have woven a scarf using a multicoloured Murano yarn from Roberta di Camerino (Italian) as the weft and a rust coloured wool yarn as the warp. I first attempted to use the Murano yarn as the warp but the mohair tangled the adjacent warps and was not workable. It is 1710mm x 210mm and weighs 142g.

Both scarves will be on sale at Perth Upmarket on 26 June at UWA.
