Two-tone blue hand-woven cashmere scarf

Ladies, this is what you can buy for that special man in your life:  A two-tone blue hand-woven cashmere scarf. In fact the two colours are sun orchid and mountain blue in the Landscapes range of dyes.  A smart business looking scarf with a luxurious feel that he will be proud to wear.  The chevron pattern will add to that business edge.  The scarf only weighs 79g and is 1800mm x 195mm.

And why not treat yourself to a matching coloured scarf in a diamond pattern?  After all, diamonds are a girls best friend!  This second scarf is slightly longer at 1830mm but is still 195mm wide and weighs 79g.

Stall at Perth Upmarket June 2015

On Sunday 21 June I had a stall at the Perth Upmarket held at UWA.  It was a cold, windy and wet day but luckily I was inside in Winthrop Hall.  Crowds were lower than usual due to the inclement weather but at least we more than covered our expenses.
The stall was stocked with hand-woven scarves, hand-bags made from our hand-woven fabrics and cross stitching embroidery, beanies made from hand-woven fabrics and needle felted animals.   Interestingly handbags were popular this time with little interest in the usual top-selling needle felted animals.

The next Perth Upmarket is scheduled for Sunday 13 September.  Unfortunately I will not be able to attend since I will be in the UK joining four other school class-mates travelling down the Avon canal.

Scarf in handwoven Millane MG yarn

Do you want that something special to set off your wardrobe?  With this in mind I have hand-woven two scarves from Millane MG yarn, colour #718.  This is a 60% rayon, 40% polyester yarn with a gold glitter metallic look.  Both scarves are short and narrow so that they accentuate your neckline without being bulky.  One is 1250mm x 145mm and weighs 43g whilst the other is 940mm x 145mm and weighs only 37g.

Both will be available on my stall at Perth Upmarket this coming Sunday, 21 June at UWA.
