More colourful Noro Mossa hand-woven scarves

If you like colour you will like my latest hand-woven scarves.  I have used Noro Mossa yarns as the weft on a bilberry coloured Australian alpaca warp.  The composite Noro yarns (52% wool, 16% viscose, 11% mohair, 11% silk and 10% polyamide) gives a fascinating textured yarn with the characteristic stripping (or banding) for which Noro are renowned.  Interestingly the wavy pattern is slightly different on both sides, one dominated by the weft, and the other by the warp.  The first scarf uses Noro Mossa #8 and is 1700mm x 205mm and weighs 142g whilst the second one uses Noro Mossa #6 and is 1840mm x 205mm and weighs 149g.

See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movements.
