Noro Mossa #8 with lavender alpaca handwoven scarves

Do you like standing out from the crowd?  These two multi-coloured scarves will certainly do that! The self striping of Noro Mossa yarns is well known and colour #8 has an abundance of bright colours. Besides their array of colours these yarns, made from 52% wool, 16% viscose, 11% mohair, 11% silk and 10% nylon, have an interesting texture with flashes of other colours.  And all this is on a background of a lavender coloured Tailored Strands Australian alpaca yarn.  In two alternative patterns each  scarf is nominally 1840mm x 210mm and weighs 165g.
I am sure these two lovely eye-catching scarves will not last long on the shelves of Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle when it is their turn to go on sale.

Noro Mossa #1 with Tailored Strands alpaca

Being in the Christmas season we think of our relatives and friends in the Northern Hemisphere.  Winter with spring around the corner. To remind them what is coming I  have used a dark brown coloured yarn as the warp (Tailored Strands Australian alpaca coloured mocca) and as the weft used a multi-coloured and textured yarn showing those gentle colours of new life (Noro  Mossa #1 yarn).  The solemn winter scene awaking in the spring!
You have a choice from two, both nominally 1830mm x 210mm and weighing 160g.  See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movements.
