Tailored Strands emeral alpaca hand-woven scarf

For those that like to "buy Australian" I have hand-woven two identical scarves using Tailored Strands 4-ply, emerald coloured, Australian alpaca yarn.  This is a lovely soft yarn as you would expect from alpaca, with an interesting pattern, and emerald green colour.  If green is your colour then this should be for you.  One scarf is 1800mm x 220mm and weighs 156g whilst the second is 1720mm x 220mm and weighs 148g.
Both scarves will be on sale at The Artisan Store Fremantle or Aspects of Kings Park depending upon stock movement.

Handwoven scarf from hand painted alpaca/mulberry silk

On my  recent holiday to the UK I purchased 100g of a hand-painted alpaca/mulberry silk 70/30 yarn at the Fairfield Mill in Yorkshire.  I have hand-woven this yarn into a neat, colourful, scarf of 1340mm x 160mm weighing 92g.  If you are looking for a small, soft, colourful scarf this is for you.
It will soon be on sale at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movements.
