Two soft, light scarves

I've completed a pair of scarves in a very yummy Colinette hand-dyed mohair and Welsh wool yarn - it's such a pleasure to knit with this yarn, and I'm pleased with the way these have turned out. The colourways are described as 'dark jacob' and 'banwy'. When you look at this yarn, the range of shades and colours is just amazing. The grey green yarn is shot through with flashes of umber, rust, charcoal, blue grey, deep blue, deep blue green, pale lime, pale yellow green. The red and white colourway contains violet blue, deep blue, deep red-brown, umber, orange, pink and white. These are very beautifully designed yarns - very soft and lightweight - and I'm planning to knit more with them!
The two scarves are now in my etsy shop and you can see them at and

Palest aqua scarf
