What it is:
An artisanal scarf that blends all the best qualities of wool, cotton, viscose, alpaca, and nylon: incredible stitch definition, soft drape, and warmth without bulk.
Why we like it:
We like the interplay of subtle color shifting yarn and a solid navy, that makes it look like the colors were almost dripped along the scarf. Reminiscent of berry-stained fingers, the reds and blues blend seamlessly together.
Who else might like it:
Someone who appreciates the look and feel of artisanal, handmade products. Woven scarves offer tons of warmth, without the bulk.
Berry Cobbler Wool 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. Then we twisted the fringe.
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.
