Hand-woven scarves using Noro Mossa yarns

About a month ago I wove three scarves, each in a different coloured Noro Mossa yarn.  The Noro Mossa yarn was used for both the warp and the weft.  I have now woven two of these Noro Mossa yarns using a single coloured wool yarn as the warp and the Noro Mossa yarn as the weft.
In the first one I choose a hand-dyed silver birch coloured merino yarn to go with the Noro Mossa #11 yarn.  The flashes of multi-colours in the Noro Mossa yarn come out against the various bands of dark tones.  The scarf is 1630mm x 200mm and weighs 126g.

In the second I choose a hand-dyed citrus coloured crinkly wool yarn to go with the Noro Mossa #17 yarn.  The citrus coloured crinkly wool dominates the scarf against the various bands of colour from the Noro Mossa yarn.  This is a bulky, soft-touching scarf of 1740mm x 200mm and weighing 178g.

It will probably be on my stall at Perth Upmarket at UWA on Sunday 28 September unless taken to Aspects of Kings Park earlier.
