Multicoloured cashmere handwoven scarf

A potential buyer missed out on a cashmere scarf she was eyeing so asked me for another.  I have used up all my supply of 2-ply cashmere yarns but had a lot of leftovers from previous woven scarves.  With these leftovers I have hand-woven two multi-coloured stripped cashmere scarves on a fine Corriedale warp.  Whoa!!  Two  beautiful lightweight colourful scarves (14 different colours) that will make you the envy of all your friends.
Nominally 1760mm x 215mm and weighing 73g these scarves would normally appear at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle but I feel they will be snapped up before they reach the stores.

Noro Mossa #9 and emerald alpaca handwoven scarf

To brighten up these dismal winter days I have picked a brightly multi-coloured Noro Mossa yarn and hand-woven it with an emerald coloured Tailored Strands Australian alpaca yarn.
The Noro Moss yarn, being 52% wool, 16% viscose, 11% mohair, 11% silk and 10% nylon, has an interesting fluffy texture with colourful specks amongst the striped colours.  The two  multi-coloured scarves are in slightly different patterns and are nominally 1800mm x 210mm and weigh 176g.  An eye-catching fluffy scarf to keep you warm these cold winter days.
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle.

Mocha and mango Tailored Strands alpaca handwoven scarves

Two interesting alpaca scarves have been hand-woven using  Tailored Strands 4-ply Australian alpaca yarns.  I have used the same pattern for both but one is in a solid mocha colour whilst in the other the mango colour yarn has been used for the weft.  The two colour scarf shows up the pattern with the mango dominant on one side and mocha on the other.  The solid mocha scarf is 1700mm x 200mm and weighs 132g, whilst the two-tone scarf is 1810mm x 200mm and weighs 139g.
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movements.
