Teal and grey hand-woven alpaca scarves

Having extinguished my stock of cashmere yarns I have turned to Tailored Strands Australian 4-ply alpaca yarns.
Using the teal coloured yarn as the weft I have hand-woven two scarves in different interesting patterns.  The two patterns both have that Aboriginal art feeling about them which is very appropriate for our recent Australian Day celebrations.  And you can see the different appearances on each side of the scarves.

Both scarves are long, one being 1850mm x 215mm and weighing 165g and the other 1870mm x 210mm and weighing 151g.  So two lovely soft-feeling and warm scarves for the forthcoming autumn and winter months.

They should be on sale at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle soon, depending upon stock movements.

Ivy coloured hand-woven cashmere scarf

After a series of bright Christmas colours I have turned to a lovely cool and calm looking colour.  The ivy colour (from the Landscape range of dyes) hand-dyed on a 2-ply cashmere yarn gives you that restful feeling in our day to day busy world.  And this lightweight scarf has that luxurious feeling associated with cashmere.  Also for a change this scarf is only 1480mm x 215mm and weighs 75g.

The true colour is more like that shown in the scarf on the back of the stool.  My camera, or is it me, has problems reproducing the correct colours of green items.  Sorry, but you could always come to see the real deal.

Citrus coloured cashmere scarf

What is 1800mm x 220mm and weighs 88g?   Of course it is my latest  hand-woven cashmere scarf. Patterned woven in an hand-dyed citrus colour this luxurious and soft neck-ware will give you an uplifting feeling as the autumn chills arrive once this hot long summer has passed.

These one-off scarves are always available at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle.  This latest one will appear soon at one of these locations.

Hand-woven fern coloured cashmere scarf

Green follows red at Christmas so I have hand-woven a hand-dyed fern coloured cashmere scarf for the New Year.  In a nice  diamond pattern this soft luxurious scarf is in a lovely green colour.  Unfortunately my photography doesn't show the lovely dark green colour so you will have to come to see it, or ask me to send you a piece of the yarn.  And for those interested, the scarf is 1760mm x 220mm and weighs 84g.

See it soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle some time soon.
