That favourite cardigan comes out, a scarf to keep the chill from your neck.

Playful, colourful, innovative and practical. Each a one off design...
Different methods of crochet , Tunisian crochet, knitting and woven .., superwash merino in some beautiful beguiling shades , to bright and cheerful budget buys , and a few other items I’ve been exploring and playing with....

I was inspired by Malagribo hand dyed yarn to experiment with dying yarns.
This is my first actual dyed scarf.
I first wove a blank in worsted weight 100% merino superwash yarn. Then came the fun part .
I folded and rolled the scarf then dyed it. Inspired by the Shibori method. The folding created a distinctive pattern. I then over dyed that pattern by dip dying it in teal, to give it a subtle ombré look. Darker richer one end to lighter colour the other end.
Being made from 100% merino, it’s super soft and cosy without being heavy.
It’s fun, it’s quirky it’s Distinctive.
Plus it fully customisable too!
Contact me to discuss colour options to make this truly personal to you. A great fun gift for yourself or a loved on x
Length 70 inches
Width 10.5 inches
Tassels 5 inches
Although it’s superwash merino I’d recommend hand washing only. To preserve the dyed colours.
Soak in Eucalan for 15 minuets then gently squeeze water out. Lay on a towel to remove excess water. Dry flat or hang over a door . Gently pull into shape.

I was inspired to experiment with hand dying my own yarns, this seemed the next logical step...
