Misty and Foggy - Long Skinny Scarves Made With Handspun Luxury Yarns

I love silver and gray - they coordinate with so many different colors. I think gray may even be the new black - the color that never goes out of style. Over the years I've spun lots of different silver and gray luxury yarns using ultra-soft alpaca, llama, lambswool, bamboo and other fine wools to create some gorgeous yarns. I finally decided to dig into my silver/gray luxury yarn stash and create something. I came up with "Misty" and "Foggy" this week.

"Misty" - Hand crocheted long skinny scarf made from handspun yarns and a novelty "fur" yarn in varying shades of silver and grays. Alpaca, llama, wool, mohair and bamboo. 61 inches long with 7" fringe at each end for a total of 75" in length - 2 inches wide. Even if you wrap it around your neck twice there is still some left over to drape down the front. Use it as a scarf, a lariat necklace, a belt or use your imagination!
Foggy


Foggier

"Foggy" - Hand crocheted long skinny scarf made from handspun yarns and a novelty "fur" yarn in varying shades of black, silver and grays. Alpaca, llama, wool, mohair and bamboo. 67 inches (5 feet 7 inches) long with 6" fringe at each end for a total of 79" (6 feet 7 inches) in length - 2 inches wide. Even if you wrap it around your neck twice there is still some left over to drape down the front. Use it as a scarf, a lariat necklace, a belt or use your imagination!

I used some of the same yarns as the "Misty" scarf for this one but Foggy has a darker side and a lighter side - foggy and foggier - for two different looks!
Both of these scarves are available in our ArtFire store. Click on the link on each name to go directly to that scarf's listing.
