Hand-woven Noro Kibou scarves

Autumn last week, spring this week.  With our national and international visitors we have to cater for all seasons year round.  This time I reflect on the spring and the lovely memories of cherry blossom in Japan.  I have hand-woven Noro Nibou #16 (54% cotton, 34% wool, 12% silk) with a fawn coloured possum/merino mix.  The two different patterns in the two scarves are hard to discern against the multiple twisted colours in the Noro yarn.  But the new growth colours and their cooling effects make for two lovely soft scarves of nominal size 1750mm x 190mm and weighing 120g.
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movement.
