What it is:
A big, fluffy convertible scarf woven in a buffalo-check pattern using grey and white 100% organic cotton yarn. The buffalo checks wax and wane, adding a modern twist to a classic pattern. It has 2 bright (but not too bright) green buttons, so you can wrap it around like a traditional scarf or button it into a cowl.
Why we like it:
It's so soft and squishy, like a cloud made out of cotton. We like the textured yarn, that sets it slightly apart, and the pop of celery-green buttons, that give it a bit of whimsy.
Who else might like it:
Great for anyone with a wool-sensitivity, who is looking for natural fibers!
This scarf is basically like wearing a hug around your neck. Once you put it on, you will not want to take it off!
Buffalo Check Cozy Scarf
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.
