2 more natural coloured hand-woven alpaca scarves

As I am about to go on a holiday to Europe I thought about which of my scarves I would take with me to wear.  After much thought I decided to weave two more the same as the last two woven, i.e., in a natural coloured mid-brown alpaca yarn from Shamwani Alpaca Stud, and also in the same pattern.  I knew I could weave them quickly and weaving two gave me one more scarf for my stock.  The previous two were for an order so already gone.
The two scarves are identical, being 1690mm x 200mm but one weighs 190g and the other 180g.  Not certain why the two weights are different with the scarves being identical size and pattern.  The photos shows both sides of the scarf as the pattern is different each side.

Now I am ready for the cold European November/December.

Hand-woven mid-brown natural coloured alpaca scarves

The final two scarves in my order for nine scarves using yarns from Shamwani Alpaca Stud have now been completed.  They are both in a natural coloured mid-brown alpaca yarn.
The first is 1750mm x 210mm and weighs 191g.
  The second is very similar being 1740mm x 205mm and weighs 193g.
The two scarves are really identical.  The two sets of photos just show the two sides of the pattern.
