Alpaca is a beautiful yarn, light but warm, with a more fluid drape than wool. We've designed a scarf in two sizes to take advantage of the Joseph Galler alpaca colors. The structure is an 8-harness shadow weave variation that includes floats to highlight the diagonal lines. Two colors are alternated in both the warp and weft to create this effect. The stole measures 20" x 106" while the scarf measures 9" x 72". Either can be hand washed and dried flat.
You will need:
- for stole: 23" weaving width and 336 heddles
- for scarf: 10" weaving width and 144 heddles
- 8 harnesses
- 15-dent reed
- 2 boat shuttle and bobbins
We used Joseph Galler's Heather Prime Alpaca colors 202 Guacamole and 222 Dark Navy for our shawl and 231 Grape Smoothie and 212 Ice Pink for the scarf.
