What it is:

A sophisticated checkered wrap blending a shimmering, dark gray and matte fiber of self-striping blues. 

 

We made the checkered pattern using a technique called supplemental weft -- which creates a secondary layer. The resulting scarf is warm, soft, and lovely.

 

Why we like it:

We love the rich variations of blues that slowly shift from end to end. Paired with a shimmering gray, it makes us think of a silvery sky right after a good rain.

 

Also, we're quite proud of weaving checks! This sort of technique requires the use of pick-up sticks on a rigid heddle loom, to create a second layer as your weave. It takes a lot of love and time, but we think the result it worth it!

 

Who else might like it: 

Anyone who needs to wrap up in a good hug.

 

Made of a cotton blend, this wrap is perfect for anyone with a wool-sensitivity.

 

 

After the Rain Wrap

$105.00Price
  • We wove this scarf in our home studio in East Tennessee using a rigid heddle loom. A rigid heddle loom is a traditional-style, table-top handloom.

    After weaving, we hand sew the edges with a hemstitch to prevent raveling.

    Finally, all scarves go through a process called wet-finishing. We soak the scarves in a gentle, eco-friendly rinse and let them air dry. This creates a stronger bond between the individual fibers by causing them to bloom and become tightly interlocked.
