Fantasia Ski Yarn Seraply handwoven scarves

Whilst on holiday in Japan recently I was given five different colours of Fantasia Ski Yarn Seraply.  This is a novelty furry 100% nylon yarn.  I have now hand-woven two of the colours into scarves.
In the first I have used colour #304, a range of reds and pinks, as the warp and used a thin, similar coloured, wool yarn as the weft.  Unfortunately I ran out of the wool yarn too soon and the final scarf is only 1270mm x 190mm and weighs 85g. Nevertheless this short scarf will bring a flash of colour to your outfit and no doubt become fluffier as the fluffy fibres of the warp emerge from the weave.

In the second scarf I have used colour #307, a range of blues and blacks, as the warp and a thin blue mohair yarn as the weft.  Using a more loose weave this scarf is very soft and fluffy, and long, at 1770mm x 220mm and weighing 108g.  The coloured lengthwise strips overlaying a subtle pattern makes for an impressionable soft and lightweight accessory.

Both will be on sale at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movements.
