Handwoven scarf using Eisaku Noro Big Bebe yarn

Eisaku Noro Big Bebe #11 yarn is multi-coloured with light green, light grey and dark, medium and light browns.  It is a yarn made with a smooth  finish but of varying thickness and consists of 38% cotton, 29% ramise, 29% wool and 4% nylon.  I  have used a lichen coloured Tailored Strands 4-ply Australian alpaca as the warp and the Eisaku Noro yarn as the weft. 

This is a light coloured, spring looking, but bulky scarf with a mainly cotton feel.  The scarf is heavy at 290g but is a good size of 1800mm x 200mm.  It will be great for those chilly spring days.
See it soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle.
