What it is:
In weaving, "log cabin" is a traditional pattern of alternative blocks of horizontal and vertical pinstripes. We put a modern twist on this classic pattern by pairing a solid gray yarn with a self-striping yarn of golds, teals, and also gray. The result is a drapy, lightweight scarf balancing subdues neutrals with pops of bright colors.
Why we like it:
We like the soft, flexible fibers and low-contrast take on the log-cabin pattern. It reminds us of the harmonius hustle and bustle found in life in the city.
Who else might like it:
Anyone who loves (or maybe just needs) a bit of color in their day! The blend of cotton and bamboo make this a perfect 3-season scarf, that will look great worn alone or tucked inside a jacket or coat.
Urban Log Cabin 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.
