A combination of fine wool and silk, soft to the touch. These feather weight scarves are a unique touch to your fall, winter or chilly summer evening wardrobe.
A simple (and somewhat intense) process, I start by gathering my wool. We like to use a few different materials in our scarves. Since we raise beautiful sheep, of course we use a touch of our farm fiber, but we also enjoy a bit of color, so we often purchase merino and silk blends from local vendors. I cut and hand dye the silk to complement the wool and start layering each wafer thin layer of wool carefully onto the silk. Once I am pleased with the arrangement, I water the layers with lots of warm water and a touch of soap. Then the fun part, I roll the scarf in bubble wrap and start my workout for the day. Lots of pressure and even some hard slaps onto the counter tops fuse the wool and silk together. The result is a fine delicate looking scarf.
These scarves are very delicate looking but are quit durable. A simple iron now and then is about all you would need, but feel free to hand wash your scarf in warm water and lay flat to dry if needed
