​Nickely Designs scarves are designed and handmade by the very talented Anglea Betheras, owner/operator of Nickelby at Darnum, located on 67 picturesque acres in the heart of West Gippsland, Victoria.  With a primary focus on alpaca fibre, Nickelby Designs scarves are created from fleece shorn from the Nickelby herd; Angela then spins, dyes and weaves the scarves herself, ensuring each scarf is unique.

Fascinated by the expressive weaving genre of SAORI, Angela recently travelled to Japan where she immersed herself in the culture and enrolled in an intensive SAORI weaving course – learning from the experts.  Angela was ‘hooked’ – a new passion ignited and of course a loom followed her home in excess luggage.  On a visit to Angela’s studio you will often find her engaged in various stages of dyeing, warping, weaving and sewing-up her spontaneous creations… that is when she’s not out and about on her property tending to her beloved Alpacas – who just adore visitors by the way!!

A visit to Nickelby at Darnum is a must!! Browse the gorgeous range of alpaca garments & throw-rugs; be sure to try-on the Nickelby Designs ‘wearable art’ – fabulous vests, hats & scarves.  Enjoy the magnificent views studded with happy alpacas, while enjoying a wine & cheese or coffee and a piece of delicious homemade cake.  Open to the public 10-5 Wednesday – Sunday & public holidays.  Closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day & Good Friday.  308 Darnum Shady Creek Rd, Darnum.  Phone: (03) 5627 8121
