Handwoven handdyed multicoloured woollen scarves

Summer is coming so I have two lightweight hand-woven, hand-dyed, multi-coloured woollen scarves for the season.  The warp in both is a thin (2-ply or thinner) woollen yarn hand-dyed in citrus, desert pea and wattle.

In the first I have used this same yarn as the weft so there is colour banding in both the length and width.  This scarf is 1700mm x 205mm and weighs 78g.
In the second scarf I have used a variable thickness woollen yarn hand-dyed in the second pot of the wattle dye.  The solid yellow weft helps to make the weaving pattern more visible.  This scarf is 1630mm x 220mm and weighs 87g.

Two fresh looking lightweight scarves which could be useful accessories for the summer.  They will be on sale at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movement.
