I started with this alpaca silk yarn, hand-dyed by Ellen’s Half Pint Farm which contains purple and two shades of blue.
In the first scarf I used the alpaca silk as an accent against aquamarine tencel. The alpaca silk is so subtle in this scarf that you can barely see it unless you are up close to it.
Next I did the same accent pattern, but used baby blue tencel for the background yarn. The alpaca silk really stands out in this scarf.
This last scarf uses the alpaca silk for the full warp (the vertical strands) and navy tencel for the weft (the horizontal strands.) I love how different the two sides look in this scarf. On one you can really see the navy floating across. On the other the navy yarn is much less visible.
