What it is:
Unique, cozy, full of color and character. A fine, solid alpaca warp plays backdrop to a richly colored 100% wool weft. A row of rya knots on each end adds extra fringe and texture.
Why we like it:
This scarf is like carrying nature with you everywhere you go. The colors remind us of fall turning into winter - the leaves have fallen, and there are dots of snow in the horizon.
We love Noro yarns. (We are not paid by them - we genuinely admire their yarns!) Noro yarns are works of art in their own right, and whenever we have the chance to weave with them, we feel so fortunate. Because of the unique nature of the yarn, no two scarves will ever be alike!
Who else might like it:
This scarf is great for those who love to be surrounded by nature and are looking for a keepsake item that is truly one-of-a-kind. The wool used is sourced from organic farms and has been created in an eco-friendly manner, without being overly-processed.
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.
