Burgundy acrylic

Whilst at the Balingup Medieval Carnivale I purchased 50g of a burgundy coloured crinkley acrylic yarn which I thought I could weave into an interesting scarf. Unfortunately the length of yarn restricted me to only a short 10cm wide warp. I used a light coloured possum/merino mix as the weft. The result is a short narrow scarf 1280mm x 90mm weighing 57g. The crinkle of the warp is only visible in the two fringes. Elsewhere an interesting mottled pattern is seen. I will test the public reaction to it at the Perth Upmarket at UWA on 2 October.
