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.
