Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn in a scarf

Would you wear socks from this so-called Sock Yarn?  But as an hand-woven scarf the yarn is a winner!.
I have used Noro Silk Garden Sock Yarn S418 as the weft on a natural coloured brown Western Australian Corriedale wool warp.  Two scarves in two patterns, with a lot of autumn tints, but with some bright red, green and blue tints.  These are nominally 1700mm x 200mm and weigh 118g.  The mix of 40% wool, 25% silk, 25% polyamide and 10% mohair with the thin Corriedale gives a lovely soft scarf, with a warm feel and look.
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle.
