Alpaca/Mohair shawl for Sonia
I was finally able to take pictures of the shawl I wove for Sonia (a close friend) in exchange for all the gorgeous jewelry she made me
The weave wasn't very dense because I used mohair boucle. I sized the warp generously before weaving because Alpaca can be treacherously pilly!

Cheers!
