What it is:
A drapy, elegant cowl in bold colors that make us dream of fall and evenings by the fire. 3 buttons allow the wearer to fasten the cowl in a v-shape or end-to-end.
Why we like it:
We like a good contrast! We used a color and weave technique that creates small squares, contrasting a matte charcoal cotton yarn with a self-striping yarn in rich oranges and reds. The red-orange blend also has shimmery threads running through it, so there's a subtle sheen in the texture.
Who else might like it:
This is perfect for anyone looking for a fresh take on fall scarves! It's lightweight, making it suitable to wear both indoors and out, and combines rich colors that signal fall is here. The button-cowl design ensures it is a "no muss, no fuss" staple to anyone's wardrobe!
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.
