Everything about this is Handmade and Earthy. This is the gift for that special someone who values the unique work of art and the time and love that made it happen.....or spoil yourself?!
The wool was handdyed by a wonderful friend, then lovingly spun on my spinning wheel and then woven on my loom. I hand twisted a 6" fringe on each end for some added pizazz and texture. Many hours were spent creating this piece and every minute was a delight. The colors are wonderful autumnal tones: rich rusts, deep cranberry reds, some soft pinks and muted browns....and the little splashes of blue are like raindrops! All of these lovely colors are hand dyed on a wool base of Blue Faced Leicester. Weaving with Handspun yarn is such a delight and Blue Faced Leicester is my all time favorite fiber to spin, knit and weave with. It's sturdy yet soft and is perfect for many projects with just a bit of nice drape. For many it's next to skin soft and it's my first choice for baby and children's knits as well as for adults. Watching the colors as they blended together in the weaving was such a delight. This scarf will feel wonderful as well as keeping the recipient warm! This scarf is thicker and heavier at a DK weight handspun.
Size: 9" x 73" (including 6" of hand twisted fringe on each end).
Take care to handwash this wool creation gently in cool water only and lay flat to dry.
I do my best to accurately photograph my yarn but monitors may differ. All my photos are taken outside in natural light. Please contact me with any questions before you purchase the scarf.
I'm happy to take orders for custom spinning and weaving for that special project. I have a large group of fibers you can choose from or you can purchase fiber elsewhere and have it sent to me. You'll pay for the cost of the fiber and the custom spinning and weaving.
