Lavender inspired hand-woven Noro Mossa/alpaca scarves

One of my favourite  places is walking over the Heaton Warren from Totland Bay to Alum Bay on the Isle of Wight.  As you come over the top you suddenly have The Needles appear, and if  you do the walk in August you are also in a "sea" of heather. I am reminded of this walk by my latest two scarves.
I have used Noro Moss #11 (52 wool, 16 viscose, 11 mohair, 11 silk, 10 nylon) with a lavender coloured Tailored Strands 100% Australian alpaca yarn.  It has the two colours of the heather, the light shades of the sandy soils and speckles of  colour depicting the other fauna and flora of the heathland.  Besides that  they are lovely bulky, warm scarves for those winter days.  Oh, and if interested, they are nominally 1860mm x 200mm and weigh 160g.
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle.
