Handspun Handwoven Alpaca Scarf
Cleopatra, my alpaca provided the grey fiber for this scarf and bay black alpacas and llamas from McFarland's Llama Farm provided the near black yarn. The black warp yarn was mill spun in the USA, and the weft yarn was spun by me. Handspun yarn makes a softer more supple feel to the finished product. This has an open weave structure which makes it light, yet warm. It measures 8" x 64" without fringe. The fringe is twisted for a cleaner look.
Hand wash. I recommend Eucalan for a soak, no rinse needed. Roll up in a towel to remove most of the moisture, then air dry. May be pressed if needed.
