Scarf # 8

imgp0986imgp0990

This very cold and frosty morning here in the UK really calls for an extra long scarf to wrap around your neck several times. This pink and green scarf is made from handspun alpaca fibre and is especially cosy. If you are a spinner, new to weaving then these scarves are a great way to try out your handspun yarns. The plastic reeds that come with all the new rigid heddle looms are very kind to the warp threads, so using your handspun for both the warp and the weft is quite possible.  Just remember to beat gently to allow the yarns to breath.
