Dampiera - Naturally Coloured Wool
This is a one-piece bandana-style scarf that slips over the head for an easy and cozy fit.
It is made from 100% naturally coloured wool. Knit from a light and rustic yarn from the Shetland Islands which is completely undyed, highlighting the natural colours of the sheep's fleece. The woven design is created using a Cormo yarn, naturally dyed in Northern California for a bright and colourful contrast.
Knit on a small knitting machine and handwoven to add the colourful patterns. This scarf is black, brown and light grey, with woven details in two blues.
This scarf sits a little higher and closer to the neck than my previous wool scarves.
Each scarf is the same size, but due to the handmade nature there are slight variations in the way each scarf sits, as well as the size of the neck hole. When worn, at its longest point this scarf measures approximately 14" plus a 3" fringe.
Gentle hand wash in cold water recommended.
Please note, this is a rustic yarn that those sensitive to wool may find itchy. I happily wear my scarf all day and have no issues.
