Handspun Alpaca Robe

This is a blanket/robe woven with purchased wool warp and handspun alpaca weft. I am the hand spinner who was instrumental in the results, as well as being the weaver.  This is over 40″ wide by 88″ long plus fringes and lovely, warm and drapable. I would love to cuddle up in it on a cold winter evening.

Inspiration shawl

This shawl was made from bamboo warp using the word Inspiration to arrange the stripes. This was purchased yarn from a shop which was closing and I only had one ball of each colour to work with so I did some twiddling. The weft is a slub, boucle grey mixed yarn in merino, alpaca and silk. It made for a variable effect. This shawl drapes wonderfully well and is quite large and warm as a wrap.  It may also look lovely as a runner on a table.
