Two hand-woven alpaca scarves

As a bit of a clear-out I have used my remaining stock of WA alpaca yarns to hand weave two scarves.  Both yarns are from Shamwani Alpaca Stud.  The first is using a natural light brown alpaca yarn.  This beautiful soft yarn makes an elegant looking patterned scarf suitable for man or woman.  It is 1800mm x 200mm, excluding fringes, and weighs 166g.

The second is using a natural white yarn which has been hand-dyed with colour Sky in the Landscape range of colours.  However, the final colour is much lighter than expected (caused by my error), but still a desirable shade of blue.  It is in a slightly thicker yarn but still has that lovely feel of alpaca, and of course, is in a unique colour.  The true colour is more like that shown in the photos of the whole scarf rather than the close-up.  For the record it is 1700mm x 200mm and weighs 187g.
