Red cotton hand-woven scarves

For those wool intolerant people, or just for a change, I have hand-woven two identical patterned scarves using a red coloured Yeoman's cotton 2-ply yarn.  These two brightly coloured  scarves weigh less than 100g and are nominally 1740mm x 225mm in size.  If you like cotton, then these may be for you.  Or it maybe you wish to bring a Christmas colour to your outfit!
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movement.

Bendigo Wool Sock Yarn handwoven scarves

A red/orange multi coloured sock yarn from Bendigo Woollen Mills (70% superwash merino wool and 30%  nylon) has been used as the warp in two scarves.  A natural coloured fawn wool yarn has been used as the weft in one scarf whilst a red possum/wool yarn has been used in the second.  Despite using the same pattern, two distinct scarves have resulted.  What a marked difference occurs when changing the colour of the weft!  Two interesting, mainly wool, scarves, which are nominally 1690mm x 220mm and weighing 130g.
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon previous sales.

Claret and grey handwoven alpaca scarves

After weaving these two scarves I thought "what a perfect pair for a his and a hers".  Woven using claret and grey colours in the range  of Tailored Strands 100% Australian alpaca, and in the same pattern, the change from a claret weft to a grey weft results in a striking pair of scarves.  Alpaca at its best, with a strong claret colour against a grey.  With both being nominally 1830mm x 220mm and weighing 146g, they make an excellent matching pair.
Buy them now direct, or wait to see them at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movements.

Teal coloured Tailored Strands alpaca handwoven scarf

Is it green or is it blue?  Well, Tailored Strands call this 100% Australian Alpaca yarn by the name Teal!  A colour suitable for both ladies and gentlemen, this scarf  has the lovely soft feel of alpaca and the pattern gives it an interesting texture.  A luxurious warm scarf for those cold nights and days.  For those interested it is 1820mm x 215mm and weighs 145g.  See it soon at Aspects of Kings Park or the Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movements.

Ocean blue Tailored Strands alpaca handwoven scarves

After several multi-coloured scarves I have chosen to hand weave two scarves in a plain old blue.  Actually ocean blue Tailored Strands 100% Australian alpaca.  I now have two beautiful blue scarves in a choice of patterns. Both are lovely and soft as you would expect from alpaca and bring you a cooling colour.  The scarves are nominally 1780mm x 220mm and weigh 156g.

Do you like a claret or two?  I have hand-woven two scarves with multi-coloured strips on a background of claret!  Noro Mossa #13 provides the multiple  colours and textures whilst the claret background is a Tailored Strands Australian alpaca yarn.   Two deep coloured textured and soft-feeling scarves, both nominally 1820mm x 200mm and weighing 165g.

Noro Mossa #8 handwoven scarves

Keeping in a colourful mood I have hand-woven two more scarves using Noro Mossa #8 yarn on a Tailored Strands 100% Australian alpaca teal coloured yarn.  Two bulky soft-feeling  scarves with many different bands of colour.  Both are nominally 1850mm x 205mm and weigh 163g. A delight to own and wear.

More leftover cashmere handwoven scarves

Amazing stuff!  I have now hand-woven six multi-coloured cashmere scarves from my leftovers from previous projects.  The left-overs are diminishing so the two shown here have less colours than the previous ones.  In fact, the second (or the sixth in the series) only has three colours.
But these hand-woven multi-coloured cashmere scarves are both spectacular with the elegance and softness associated with the yarn.  They are both nominally 1720mm x 200mm and weigh 72g.
The last two were snapped up before they hit the shelves.  These two may be seen soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle depending upon stock movements.

Multicoloured cashmere handwoven scarf

A potential buyer missed out on a cashmere scarf she was eyeing so asked me for another.  I have used up all my supply of 2-ply cashmere yarns but had a lot of leftovers from previous woven scarves.  With these leftovers I have hand-woven two multi-coloured stripped cashmere scarves on a fine Corriedale warp.  Whoa!!  Two  beautiful lightweight colourful scarves (14 different colours) that will make you the envy of all your friends.
Nominally 1760mm x 215mm and weighing 73g these scarves would normally appear at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle but I feel they will be snapped up before they reach the stores.

Noro Mossa #9 and emerald alpaca handwoven scarf

To brighten up these dismal winter days I have picked a brightly multi-coloured Noro Mossa yarn and hand-woven it with an emerald coloured Tailored Strands Australian alpaca yarn.
The Noro Moss yarn, being 52% wool, 16% viscose, 11% mohair, 11% silk and 10% nylon, has an interesting fluffy texture with colourful specks amongst the striped colours.  The two  multi-coloured scarves are in slightly different patterns and are nominally 1800mm x 210mm and weigh 176g.  An eye-catching fluffy scarf to keep you warm these cold winter days.
See them soon at Aspects of Kings Park or The Artisan Store Fremantle.

Mocha and mango Tailored Strands alpaca handwoven scarves

Two interesting alpaca scarves have been hand-woven using  Tailored Strands 4-ply Australian alpaca yarns.  I have used the same pattern for both but one is in a solid mocha colour whilst in the other the mango colour yarn has been used for the weft.  The two colour scarf shows up the pattern with the mango dominant on one side and mocha on the other.  The solid mocha scarf is 1700mm x 200mm and weighs 132g, whilst the two-tone scarf is 1810mm x 200mm and weighs 139g.
