This oceans alpaca scarf is a warm winter weight scarf. It can be worn in several ways from simply hanging gracefully down or snuggled up around your neck. It does have a fluffy texture and I have found visitors to our studio who are allergic to wool may find the texture not to their liking. We do have visitors however, that love the warmth and weight of these alpaca scarves.
The pattern I have woven this scarf in is called shadow weave. This is where you have two contrasting coloured yarns which alternate in the warp and the weft to give a shadowing affect. The colours are a muted green and navy.

For the oceans alpaca scarf, I have used is 100% alpaca. The preparing, carding, spinning, weaving and finishing process of alpaca is very similar to the process used for wool. It is a soft, durable, luxurious and silky natural fibre. Alpaca fibre is naturally water-repellent and fire resistant.
Two of the scarves (‘Waves’ and ‘Diamonds’) measure 66 by 10 inches (168 by 25cm). The third scarf ‘Double Diamonds’ measures 58 by 10 inches (148 by 25cm). The fringe on all of them is approximately 4 inches (10cm) long and has been twisted which as well as giving a nice touch to the scarf it also helps protect those warp ends from wear. The scarf has been hand stitched at either end which helps with preserving the scarf and also another feature to help complete the handmade look.
To take care of your oceans alpaca scarf you will need to gently hand wash in warm water, separately from other items. Rinse. Lie flat in the shade to dry. If you think the scarf needs an iron then do so while it is still damp.
The scarf will be packaged in a black gift box with our logo on the front. Inside the box the scarf will be surrounded by tissue paper.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.
