Tailoered Strands 2-ply alpaca lace

Well at long last I am back into weaving.  With a Perth Upmarket coming up this Sunday at UWA I have woven two scarves using Tailored Strands 2-ply alpaca lace.
The first, in scarlet, is 1820mm x 210mm and weighs 126g.  And the colour seems to attract all who see it.

The second, in mid-grey, is 1800mm x 215mm and weighs 130g.  A more gentile colour which may be suitable for the man in your life.

I have used two different small repetitive patterns for the scarves but neither show up very clearly.  But both scarves are lovely and soft as you would expect from a top quality alpaca yarn.  You will find them very useful accessories on those cold winter days whilst on your forthcoming Northern Hemisphere travels or as lightweight gifts to send to your overseas friends for Christmas.
