Hand-woven scarves using Full Circle Fibres cotton yarns

It is pleasing to be able to make a product which is 100% Australian made.  Full Circle Fibres grow the cotton in Queensland, have it spun in Victoria,  hand-dye it in Queensland, and then I have hand-woven it in Western Australia!
In the first scarf I have taken their ocean and cornflower dyed cotton and hand-woven them into a patterned scarf with the ocean as the warp and the cornflower as the weft.  The yarns are not solid dyed so some specks of white appear to add interest to the appearance.
In the second scarf I have used the jade coloured yarn as the warp and the crimson as the warp in an equally interesting pattern.
Both scarves are nominally 1830mm x 210mm and weigh 157g.  These scarves will appeal to cotton lovers, or those allergic to wool whilst proudly being 100% Australian.
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle.
