A new sample, a new book

I've finally gotten around to photographing a sample for a new range of scarves. The colours available in cashmere from Avril are pretty amazing that, amongst others, I couldn't resist using the super saturated turquoise for this small run. I really want one for myself, but I think I'll be last on the list. Once woven, the final design will look a little less like stripes and more like large blocks of colour. When you're using cashmere, you don't want to hide it in the warp yarn. Using a double-faced twill means that the colour will be saturated on both sides. Oh and Nigel Peake, he's awesome too!
