Two sock yarns in hand-woven scarves

As a bit of variation I have taken two sock yarns to put around your ears!
With Bendigo multicoloured sock yarn, purple pink multi (70% wool, 30% nylon), as the warp and Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn S43 (40% wool, 25% silk, 25% polyamide, 10% mohair) as the weft I have hand-woven two scarves in two different patterns.  They are a little short, being nominally 1650mm x 210mm and weighing 137g, but still long enough to wrap around your ears or in any other style that you like.  The varying thickness of the Noro yarn gives some interesting texture within the  woven pattern.  Two warm scarves for those winter days.
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle.
